City Cyber Crime Investigation Cell (CTIC) of Dhaka Metropolitan Police has arrested a drama director and female model on allegations of blackmailing. According to information provided on the verified Facebook ID of Md Najmul Islam, Additional Deputy Commissioner, CTIC, a team of the unit led by Senor Assistant Commissioner Jyotirmoy Gope arrested drama Director Sujan Barua (43) and a female model named Nadiya Priya (21) from Dhaka’s Badda area on June 28, 2021.
According to media sources, Sujan Barua also falsely proclaims to be a film director. But a source at Bangladesh Film Director’s Association told this correspondent that Sujan Barua’s claim of being a film director is totally false. It may be mentioned here that, dozens of drama makers as well as music video makers are falsely proclaiming as film director and although they are providing such false declaration of their social media accounts, Bangladesh Film Director’s Association has failed in taking any actions against these fraudulent claimants.
According to Md Najmul Islam, Additional Deputy Commissioner, CTIC, few days ago, Sujan Barua introduced Nadia Priya to a film producer. Following this, the producer and the female model developed intimacy, while Nadia Priya was secretly filming her illicit physical activities with the producer.
A month later, Nadia Priya started demanding BDT 6 million in cash and an apartment in Dhaka from the producer. As the blackmailers continued intensifying their pressure tactic and even threatened of releasing those video clips on social media, the producer sought help from the City Cyber Crime Investigation Cell (CTIC) of Dhaka Metropolitan Police. On the basis of this complaint, CTIC team arrested Sujan Barua and Nadia Priya and confiscated video clips and device which were used in the blackmailing bids. A case under Digital Security Act of 2018 and Pornography Prevention Act of 2012 has been lodged with the Vatara Police Station in this regard (case number 5, under section 25,29,35 or the Digital Security Act of 2018 and section 8(1)/8(2)/(3) of the Pornography Prevention Act of 2012.
