Dhallywood superstar Shakib Khan has filed another case against film producer Rahmat Ullah who brought a rape allegation against him.

The actor filed the case under the Digital Security Act (DSA) with the court of Dhaka Cyber Tribunal Judge Julfiqer Hayat on Monday.   

The court recorded the statement of Shakib and ordered the Police Bureau of Investigation (PBI) to submit a report on an investigation into the issue on June 6.

Earlier on March 23, Shakib filed a case against the producer Rahmat Ullah with Dhaka Metropolitan Magistrate bringing allegations of extortion and death threat against him. 

On March 15, Rahmat submitted a written complaint against Shakib to the Bangladesh Film Artists Association. 

He mentioned in the complaint that Shakib raped a female co-producer during the shooting of movie “Operation Agnipath” in Australia in 2017. Later, he fled to the country.

On March 16, Shakib sat with Rahmat at a restaurant in the capital’s Gulshan to settle the matter but they couldn’t reach any solution. Shakib’s ex-wife Apu Biswas and the producers’ leader Khorshed Alam Khasru were, among others, present during this time.
