Dhaka, Sept 13 : Members of Counter-Terrorism and Transnational Crime (CTTC) on Wednesday night arrested the son-in-law of Sultan Shahriar Rashid Khan, executed killer of Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, from city’s Hatirjheel area for posting derogatory comments against Bangabandhu on Facebook.

Fuad Zaman, the husband of Shehnaz Rashid Khan, daughter of Sultan Shahriar Rashid Khan, was detained on charges of giving a post on Facebook praising the killers of Bangabandhu and making ‘derogatory comments’ against him, said Masudur Rahman, deputy commissioner (media) of Dhaka Metropolitan Police.
