Shakib Al Hasan (R).

Bangladesh all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan received a death threat on Facebook Live, accusing the cricketer of blasphemy.

Additional Deputy Commissioner of Sylhet Metropolitan Police, B.M. Ashraf Ullah Taher, said, “We just became aware of the matter. The video link has been handed over to the cyber forensic team. Legal action will be taken soon.”

Ashraf Ullah Taher, an official of the Dhaka Metropolitan Police, said, “This is a defamation and an attempt to destroy communal harmony.”

Both the videos have been removed from Facebook.
