The university authorities handed him over to police around 4:00pm, confirmed Motihar Police Station Officer-in-Charge Anwar Ali Tuhin to The Daily Star.
"We later showed him arrested in a case under the Digital Security Act, which was filed by the teacher Prof Begum Asma Siddiqua," said the OC.
Quoting the case statement, the OC said, "Ashik Ullah earlier posted several defamatory posts against Prof Asma and other teachers of the department using a Facebook page."
Earlier in the day, the RU authorities suspended the master's student residing at Shaheed Ziaur Rahman Hall on the same charge.
