Singer Sajia Sultana Putul has been threatened with rape on social media Facebook. Putul herself reported the matter on Facebook.

In a Facebook post with multiple screenshots, Putul wrote, “Recognize the rapist, what a spontaneous desire to rape me!” 

Putul told the media that a youth named Ashikur Rahman had threatened to rape her on social media. After discussing the matter on Facebook, the youth sent a video message with apologizing. She also forgave him. But the youth, later, removed the video.

The former Closeup One star said she was seeking “legal advice” and was “considering filing a lawsuit”.

“Due to sitting quietly after being harassed, getting rape threats have increased the courage of such people. Those who do so on Facebook — we will have to reveal their names, identities, and account links. If we can increase public awareness in this way, crime will also decrease,” Putul said.
