Proceedings of case against actress Nawshaba stayed

WT24 Desk

The High Court on Wednesday stayed the proceedings of a case filed against actress Quazi Nawshaba Ahmed under the Information and Communication Technology (ICT) Act, reports UNB.

The bench of justice Md Rezaul Haque and justice Bhishmadev Chakrabrtty passed the order after hearing an appeal seeking cancellation of the framing of charges in the case.

Lawyer Jyotirmoy Barua stood for Nawshaba while deputy attorney general Aminur Rahman Chowhury represented the state.

Members of Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) detained the actress from Uttara area in the capital on 4 August 2018 on allegation of spreading rumours on Facebook overstating an attack on protesting students during the movement for road safety last year.

In a Facebook live, Nawshaba claimed that the attackers killed two students and gouged out the eyes of another at Jigatala intersection in Dhaka.

In her post, she also requested people to get united, take to the streets to ‘protect’ the students as they were attacked by Bangladesh Chhatra League activists.
