Police have arrested a youth at Nitaiganj of Narayanganj Sadar for spreading rumors over salt price hike on his Facebook post.

The detainee identified as Abdul Karim and the resident of the area.

Sadar Police Station Officer-in-Charge Asaduzzaman said that the boy was standing in front of a shop in Nitaiganj and spreading rumors over salt price hike. He has been detained for this reason.

The OC also said police are monitoring the market to prevent the sale of salt at high price.

Babu Mia, owner of SR Tedding in Nitaiganj, said I come to know about salt price hike and crisis on Facebook post. But there is no salt crisis in the market. We sold salt at a previous rate.

Abu Hanif, who hails from Gopaldi said, "I have come to the market after receiving news of salt crisis on Facebook. But came here I knew it was a rumor.
