What happened in Bhola

On Sunday, casualties occurred in Borhanuddin upazila when police opened fire to disperse a mob demanding punishment for Biplob Chandra Shuvo, who they believed was responsible for spreading offensive messages against Islam on Facebook Messenger app.

The day before the clash, Biplob had gone to Borhanuddin police station to file a general diary saying his Facebook account had been hacked. 

Later, police found that hackers had sent messages from Biplob’s account to several people on his friend list, asking them to tell him to pay money if he wanted his account back.

Police and locals said messages containing derogatory remarks about Allah, and Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) were sent to several individuals on Facebook from Biplob’s account. 

On the evening of that day the clash occurred, Borhanuddin police station Sub-Inspector (SI) Delwar Hossain filed a case against Biplob, and seven to eight unnamed others, under the Digital Security Act.

Police also filed a case against 5,000 unnamed people over the attack on police during the clash.
