Members of Rapid Action Battalion (Rab) have arrested a young man who threatened to hack ace all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan to death for his participation in a Kali puja programme in Kolkata.
A team of the elite force picked Mohsin Talukdar, son of Azad Box Talukdar of Shahpur Talukdarpara in Sylhet Sadar upazila, up from Sunamganj district on Tuesday morning.
Shakib recently joined the Kali puja programme in Kolkata which angered Mohsin.
In a Facebook live at 12:07am on Monday, he threatened to hack the all-rounder to death, saying he would come to Dhaka on foot to accomplish his job if necessary.
He also used abuses on Shakib.
In another Facebook live later, the youth, however, regretted his comments, saying he made so out of short temper.
He also advised Shakib to offer apology through a press conference for taking part in the puja programme.
Meanwhile, Shakib in a video posted on his YouTube channel offered apology for what he said if anyone got hurt for his participation in the puja programme.
