VP Nur now sued under Digital Security Act

A case has been filed against Ducsu Nurul Haque Nur under the Digital Security Act (DSA).

The case was filed as Nur called a Dhaka University (DU) student “characterless” in a Facebook live on Sunday.  

The student, who had earlier accused him of abetting in her rape, told to media.

She lodged the lawsuit against Nur with the Cyber Tribunal Judge Md As-Shams Jaglul Hossain in Dhaka around 12:30 pm on Wednesday.

The complainant -- a postgraduate student of the university’s Islamic Studies department — has been on a fast-unto-death at the university campus since Thursday night.

Previously, she filed two rape cases late last month. Nur was named in both cases as an abettor along with several others.
