The report was submitted to the court of Dhaka Metropolitan Magistrate Satyabrata Sikder on Wednesday (February 3) by PBI inspector Lutfar Rahman. The PBI submitted a report requesting him to be excused from the case as he could not find a witness in the case.

Earlier, on November 25, 2019, the editor of the Students Journal BD Mia Md. Nuzhatul Hachan objected to the police report. Following the hearing, the court directed the PBI to re-investigate the case. Later on October 24, the investigation officer of the case Shahbagh Police Station Inspector (Investigation) Mahbubur Rahman submitted a report to the court of Dhaka Metropolitan Magistrate Ziaur Rahman saying that the truth of the case was not found.
In the report, Mahbubur Rahman mentioned that there was no defamatory incident in the statement of Shami Kaiser. The plaintiff in the case could not present evidence in this regard.
Students Journal BD Secretary Mia. Nuzhatul Hachan filed the defamation suit on April 30, 2019, in the court of Dhaka Metropolitan Magistrate Asaduzzaman Noor. The court accepted the plaintiff’s statement and directed the Shahbagh Police Station Inspector (OC) to investigate and submit a report.
Two mobile phones of Shami Kaiser were stolen from the opening ceremony of e-commerce based tourism site ‘Bindu 365’ on April 24, 2019, at the Zahur Hossain Chowdhury Auditorium of the National Press Club. In addition to the 50 cameramen, more than 100 people and law enforcement officials were present at the event.
In this regard, Shami Kaiser complained that the journalists have stolen mobile phones. He also had his bodyguards search the bodies of journalists. When anyone wanted to get out of the scene, the security guards of Shami Kaiser called them ‘thieves’. The journalists were outraged. They expressed their displeasure at the ceremony.
Later, it was seen from the video footage taken by the journalists on camera that one of the lighting workers who came to the event stole two smartphones. After watching the video footage, Shami Kaiser expressed his “regret” to the journalists.
