The police arrested a person named Abu Ramim alias Moinuddin Tamim over allegedly spreading rumors concerning the capital market on social media.
Abu Ramim was arrested and subsequently sent to the prison on March 12 after the securities regulator Bangladesh Securities and Exchange Commission (BSEC) filed a case against him.
BSEC officials familiar with the matter said Moinuddin Tamim disseminated various misleading information about the stock market in a Facebook group named ‘BD Stocks Discussion’.
BSEC had followed the social media group and found evidence of various types of misinformation there, they added.
Following that criminal offense, a case was filed against Abu Ramim with the capital’s Sher-e-Bangla Nagar police station on November 20.
The case was later transferred to the cyber and special crime unit of the criminal investigation department (CID) of the police.
