  • BD jobs CEO Fahim Masrur arrested

Md Sadik, a former Chhatra League mass education editor of the Dhaka University unit, had filed a case against Fahim on April 22 on charges of defamation of the prime minister on Facebook

On Wednesday morning, a police team arrested AKM Fahim Mashroor, chief executive officer of bdjobs – Bangladesh’s largest online platform for jobseekers and job providers – on charges of defaming Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina.

Fahim was arrested from the bdjobs office in Kawran Bazar by a cybercrimes unit of police. Additional Deputy Commissioner Nazmul Islam with the Counter Terrorism and Transnational Crimes unit confirmed the arrest. Fahim was produced before a court which granted six days of remand.

ADC Nazmul said one Md Sadik, a former Chhatra League mass education editor of the Dhaka University unit, had filed a case against Fahim on April 22 accusing him of defaming the prime minister on Facebook.

The plaintiff alleged that he found several Facebook posts by Fahim to be disparaging to the prime minister and was compelled to act.

Fahim has also served as the president of Bangladesh Association of Software and Information Services (BASIS) from 2013 to 2015.
