Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) has handed over Bidhan Majumder, the brother-in-law of Biplob Chandra Shuvo, to his family in Borhanuddin upazila of Bhola.

The elite force handed him over to his father Binay Bhushon Majumder on Wednesday.

However, no comments were provided by RAB officials in this regard.

Bidhan is the brother-in-law of Biplob Chandra Shuvo, who was recently jailed for alleged hate conversations against Islam on Facebook Messenger app.

Biplob went to Borhanuddin police station on October 19 to file a general diary claiming that his account was hacked. 

Dolarhat police station Officer-in-Charge (OC) Mizanur Rahman Patwary told Dhaka Tribune that RAB officials handed over Bidhan and his shop staff Sagar around 12:30am on Wednesday.

In this regard, Binoy Majumder, Bidhan’s father, filed a general diary with Dolarhat police station on Tuesday. 

According to the general diary, Bidhan was picked up by some unidentified people from his jewelry shop in Dolarhat area of the upazila on Monday evening, reportedly to be interviewed for a private TV channel.

Earlier on Sunday, four people were killed and over 200 injured in Bhola's Borhanuddin upazila, when police opened fire to disperse a mob demanding punishment for a Hindu man, who they believed was responsible for spreading offensive messages against Islam on the Facebook Messenger app.

The same evening, Borhanuddin police station Sub-Inspector (SI) Delwar Hossain filed a case under the Digital Security Act against Biplob and seven to eight unnamed others, for spreading derogatory messages about Islam

Police and locals said messages with derogatory remarks about Allah and the 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. 

A case was filed with Borhanuddin police station against 5,000 unnamed people for the mob clash with police.
