A Dhaka court on Thursday sentenced Md Fuad, son-in-law of Bangabandhu's killer Colonel Rashid, seven year's jail term for his derogatory comment on Sheikh Mujib's murder.

Dhaka Cyber Tribunal Judge As-Shams Jaglul Hossain pronounced the order during a hearing on a case filed under the ICT act. The court also imposed a Tk 5,000 fine on the accused and another month in jail for failure to pay.

Fuad, a school teacher and husband of retired Colonel Rashid's daughter Shehnaz Rashid Khan, was present during the hearing.

On August 15, 2018, at 7:17am, Fuad made a derogatory remark on the killing of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman on Facebook. He also publicly supported the convicted killers of Bangabandhu.
