Shafiq Munshi and his cronies have been demanding extortion for a long time for fear of spreading unethical news in the name of journalism. They are spreading false information against me without getting any money.
This cycle has discovered a new definition of extortion. They wanted 5,000 rupees to eat sweets. I am a student, he has spread fabricated information against me for not being able to pay so much money.
He has taken everyone hostage in the university. We have given all the information, data, and evidence to the journalists and the appropriate authorities and Shafiq Munshi, Sohag and their crooks have been spreading completely false and untrue baseless information about me through social media and harassing me through defamation and cyberbullying. I will take legal action.

In the human chain, he said, the allegations made by Shahbaz Mia Sovan to the university administration and the allegations made in the name of the press conference are completely false.
