The government is taking measures so that no one can be arrested or sued under the Digital Security Act before investigation, Law Minister Anisul Huq has said.
"We are saying no cases will be lodged right away. If there is any allegation, police will investigate and accept the case accordingly," the law minister told BBC Bangla yesterday.
The Digital Security Act came into limelight after the death of writer Mushtaq Ahmed, who was arrested under the act and died in Kashimpur High-Security Jail-3 in Gazipur on Thursday.
The government is trying to reach a conclusion where no one can be arrested prior to investigation, the minister said.
Asked about bail under the act, the minister said, the government has prepared the rule following the principle -- when to provide bail, and when not.
About the ongoing misuse of law, the minister said they are taking measures to stop it.
