The brother-in-law of Biplob Chandra Baddya Shuvo, whose Facebook account had allegedly been hacked and used for spreading the hate speech that resulted in a deadly clash at Bhola, was picked up from his jewellery shop in Dolarhat of the upazila by some unknown persons, who introduced themselves as detectives. Bidhan Majumder, 35, and his employee Sagar were picked up from the shop on Monday night.

Bidhan’s father, Binoy Majumder, filed a general diary with the Dolarhat police station yesterday. As per the general diary, Bidhan and his employee were picked up by unidentified men who came in a microbus, reportedly asking them to appear for an interview on a private TV channel. However, both have been missing since then.

When they were getting into the car, locals asked them about their identity and they said they were DB police, the father said, quoting locals. Contacted, Md Mizanur Rahman Rahman, officer-in-charge of Dolarhat police station, said he had no idea whether any DB team had gone there and picked up Bidhan. Bidhan hailed from Gazaria in Lalmohon upazila of Bhola. Soon after protesters demanded withdrawal of the Bhola superintendent of police (SP), Sarkar Mohammad Kaisar, his Facebook account was reportedly hacked yesterday.

A general diary was filed with Bhola Sadar police station in this regard. The officer-in-charge of the police station, Enayet Hossain, confirmed this.

About his Facebook account being hacked, SP Kaisar told the media: “I think my ID has been hacked by someone.”

On Sunday, four people were killed and over 200 injured in Bhola’s Borhanuddin upazila, as the police opened fire to disperse a mob that had gathered to demand punishment for a Hindu man who, they believed, was responsible for hate messages against Islam on the Facebook Messenger app.

On Sunday evening, Buhanuddin police station sub-inspector Delwar Hossain filed a case against Biplob and seven to eight unnamed others under the Digital Security Act for spreading messages containing derogatory remarks on Islam.

The police and locals said messages containing derogatory remarks about Allah and Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) were sent to several individuals from the Facebook ID of Biplob Chandra Shuvo.  Screenshots of the messages went viral on Facebook, triggering condemnation and protests.

Biplob went to Borhanuddin police station on October 19 to file a general diary claiming that his account had been hacked. The police also detained two suspected hackers.

A case was filed against 5,000 unknown people over the clash with Borhanuddin police station.
