A Dhaka court today placed Ruma Sarker, an associate professor of Begum Badrunnessa Government Girls’ College, on a two-day remand in a case lodged under Digital Security Act (DSA) for spreading provocative, false and rumored videos on social media Facebook.

Dhaka Metropolitan Magistrate Masud Ur Rahman passed the order as police produced Ruma Sarker before the court and pleaded to place her on a seven-day remand.

Ruma Sarker is accused of sharing on Facebook a video of Shahin Uddin’s murder in capital’s Pallabi, terming it as the footage of Jatan Saha killing in Noakhali. She is also accused of spreading communal hatred through sharing rumors on social networking sites.

Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) arrested Ruma Sarker from her Baily Road flat on Wednesday and filed the case with Ramna Police Station.
