Bangladesh youth arrested on charge of IS propaganda


Dhaka: A youth was arrested on the charge of spreading Islamic State (IS) propaganda in Bangladesh.

Dhaka Metropolitan Police (DMP) on Wednesday said Nahid Hossain, 25, was arrested from Dhaka on Tuesday night, Xinhua reported.

“The detainee was spreading propaganda in favour of IS through internet using a fake name…,” said DMP.

No further details were given about the arrest.

The youth was arrested at a time when Bangladesh has ruled out jihadists’ links to the recent killing of two foreigners, some secular writers and policemen.
