Police arrested a businessman after he uploaded a Facebook post boasting of taking Covid vaccine at his home in the port city on Monday.
Mohammad Hasan’s trouble began as his post, along with his image taking the shot in the arm, went viral. Another man Mobarak Ali, who assisted him in taking the jab, was also arrested.
Aftab Hossain, inspector of Khulshi Police Station, said Hasan also uploaded a statement thanking Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina and Mobarak Ali for getting the first dose of Moderna vaccine, said Aftab.
Mohammad Shahinuzzaman, officer-in-charge of Khulshi Police Station, said “We have got an oral complaint. Later, a team of police conducted a drive at the house of Hasan at Zakir Hossain Road and arrested him early Monday.”
Police are looking for Hasan’s friend who took the vaccine in the same manner, said OC.
Civil Surgeon Sheikh Fazle Rabbi, said “We will find out who were behind this and who took the shots at home. The health worker, who is responsible for that, will be brought under law as taking a jab at home is a crime.”
