The Counter Terrorism and Transnational Crime (CTTC) unit of Dhaka Metropolitan Police filed a case against Bangladeshi expat in Saudi Arabia Mustaq Mohammad Arman Khan, who claims that he is Imam Mahdi.
An inspector of the unit filed the case with Ramna Police Station on 22 August on charges of misinterpretation of religious affairs and spread of provocative speech, said CTTC Deputy Commissioner Saiful Islam.
A graduate from Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology (BUET) in 2006, Mustaq went to Saudi Arabia in 2018 and since then was spreading provocative speech, he said. Claiming that he was nominated as Imam Mahdi, Mustaq called upon the youths for Jihad under his leadership.
CTTC officials have already arrested 19 youths who were preparing to join him in Saudi Arabia, Saiful said. Police will communicate with the Saudi counterparts to arrange his extradition.
