Imrul Hossain for DOT
The Shakib’s fan who entered the field on the second day of the Chittagong Test for handing over a bouquet of flower was shown arrested in a case filed by Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB).
The youth was identified as Foysal Ahmed. Md Mainul Islam, Officer-in-Charge of Pahartali police station said that the youth was shown arrested.
Previously on Friday, BCB Security Supervisor Arefin Hossain Imran filed the case with Pahartali police station. Foysal Ahmed was made the lone accused in the case.
The OC said that the youth acted against the law.
The case is the first legal action against breaching the security rule of the ground.
Earlier, taking the chance of BCB’s security lack, three such incidents took place in two different venues of the country. Then BCB did not take any hard actions. The accused were handed over to the police and later they were released after signing bonds.
On Friday, the play of the 2nd day of the one-off Test between Bangladesh and Afghanistan at Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium got halted for a while as a crazy fan ran onto the field to give Bangladesh Test captain Shakib Al Hasan a flower bouquet.
The fan presented the flowers by kneeling down in front of Shaikb and then saluted him. Police later took him outside of the stadium.
Though the stadium was under tight security, the fan’s entrance into the stadium bypassing all security left the on duty security personnel red faced.
Earlier, Mashrafe Bin Mortaza and Mushfiqur Rahim faced the same situation on the field.
