Viral footage shows ‘Katiadi OC’ in compromising situation

A video footage went viral recently showing the officer-in-charge of Katiadi Model Police Station here in a compromising situation with a local woman, generating a huge buzz in the area.

Abu Shama Md Iqbal Hayat, the police official supposedly in the video, claims that the footage has been doctored and has lodged a general diary in this regard. Meanwhile, the woman filed a case under Digital Security Act accusing two people on Monday.

Law enforcers arrested the main accused in the case – Himel, son of Asad Mia of Katiadi municipality area – soon after. Later, they picked up the other accused — Syed Mursalin Darashiko, President of Katiadi Press Club – from his home and interrogated him at the police station.

As the situation worsens, the superintendent of district police directed Md Mizanur Rahman, additional superintendent (investigation) of police, to look into the incident.

Sources said the woman seen in the video is the wife of an expatriate of the area. She had been friends with accused (and arrested) Himel.

According to the case statement, she maintained friendly relations with Himel in 2016-17. Taking advantage of their friendship, Himel collected some photos from her mobile showing her in intimate situations with her husband.

On August 29 this year, Himel sent some indecent photos to her brother-in-law’s mobile that show her with an unidentified man in compromising situations.

Later, a fake Facebook account with the name Priya Sultana spread more indecent pictures and a video footage recently of a man and a woman’s intimacy, and claimed them to be  the expatriate’s wife and the OC.

She claimed the culprits distorted her picture and spread it on social media, which defamed her socially.

Abu Shama Md Iqbal Hayat, the OC, said a woman filed a case regarding the viral video. Police arrested the main accused on Monday.

Mashrukur Rahman Khaled, superintendent of Kishoreganj Police, said action will be taken after looking into the case.

Md Mizanur Rahman, additional superintendent (investigation) of police, said things would become clear after the video is tested in forensic lab.
