PV Desk : A Dhaka court has acquitted journalist Probir Sikdar in an ICT case filed over ‘defaming’ former LGRD and Cooperatives Minister Khandker Mosharraf Hossain on Facebook.
Dhaka Cyber Tribunal Judge Mohammad As-Shams Jaglul Hossain announced the verdict in the 2016 case on Thursday.
Probir Sikdar, in an immediate reaction after the announcement of the verdict, said: “I have received justice.”
In its observations in the decision, the court noted that the ‘victim’ had not stood as the plaintiff in the case, nor had any close friend or relative. Nor did the alleged victim testify in the case as a witness, the judge said.
