A mobile court on Wednesday imposed a fine of Tk 20,000 on a 21-year-old youth for stalking two female students of Chittagong University in the Borodighirpar area of Hathazari upazila.
Assistant Commissioner (land) Sharif Ullah, an executive magistrate, said the female students of CU have been frequenting the area for the past three years for private tuition purposes.
"Some youths of the area have been teasing them on the students on their way to tuition classes for the past couple of months," he said.
On Wednesday too, Rakib, son of Mohammad Emran, along with his friends, stalked the girls as usual. "One of them resisted and an argument broke out between her and the stalkers, prompting her to call police," Sharif said.
Later, the mobile court, slapped a fine of Tk 20,000 on Rakib.
According to local people, Rakib studies in a college abroad but is currently in his home country of Bangladesh owing to the Covid-induced lockdown.
