Rafiqul Madani lands in jail

A Gazipur court on Thursday sent child orator Rafiqul Islam Madani to jail in a case filed under Digital Security Act (DSA).

Gazipur Senior Judicial Magistrate Shariful Islam ordered to send Rafiqul Madani to jail after he was produced before the court.

Earlier, DAD of RAB Nayek Subeder Abdul Khaleq filed the case against Rafiqul Madani under the DSA with Gachha police station, said deputy police commissioner of Gazipur Metropolitan Police Mohammad Iltutmish.

Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) arrested him from Netrakona on charge of delivering ‘anti state’ and ‘provocative’ statement.

The 26-year-old Madani is known as ‘Shishu Bakta’ due to his small body size.

He is also director of Saoatul Hera Madrasha at Paschim Bilashpur in Netrakona district and assistant vice president of Jubo Jamiat, a wing of Jamiat-e-Ulama- Islam, of Netrakona.

Madadi was arrested earlier on March 25 from Motijheel area during a demonstration protesting the visit of Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi on the occasion of the Golden Jubilee of Independence and later he was freed.
