Bangladesh: Chinese national booked for promoting obscenity through mobile app

India Blooms News Service | @indiablooms | 07 Oct 2022, 12:25 pm

Bangladesh police have booked a Chinese national and four others for  making millions illegally in Bangladesh by promoting obscenity through a mobile app, media reports said on Friday.

Live streaming platform Bigo Bangla has allegedly earned a total of Tk 1.08 billion from the people in Bangladesh, through the promotion of obscenity on its mobile app, reports Prothom Alo.

The Chinese national was identified as Yao Jie.

The Criminal Investigation Department (CID) of Bangladesh Police has obtained necessary evidence in this regard and filed a case against the managing director of Bigo Bangla, Yao Jie, under the money laundering prevention act, reports Prothm Alo.

The Bigo Bangla boss has been subjected to an allegation of siphoning off Tk 790 million from Bangladesh, the newspaper reported.

Sohel Rana, the CID sub-inspector (SI) who filed the case, told Prothom Alo that he has dug into the allegations of money laundering against Bigo Live for more than a year.

After collecting necessary evidence, he filed the lawsuit against the Bigo official on Sept 25. 

Apart from the MD, Bigo Bangla workers Najmul Haque, Arif Hossain, and a company named Monsoon Holding have been made defendants in the case.
