Dhaka Metropolitan Police (DMP) Detective Branch on Wednesday questioned Ashraful Hossen Alom, better known as Hero Alom, about his controversial video content shared on social media.

He was questioned at the DB office in the capital Minto Road in the morning because there were numerous “cyber allegations” against him, DMP Deputy Commissioner Mohammad Faruque Hossain said.

Recently, Hero Alom shared “offensive, defamatory and illegal videos” and other content on its official Facebook and YouTube channels. He also appeared in police uniform in videos without permission. These created a cascade of backlash from commoners, Faruque said.

Alom told detectives that he creates and shares viral content on the internet, primarily to make money. More views and revenue matter the most to him.

Asked about the obscene songs he created about several political leaders and role models such as Palalo Palalo Murad Hasan, Rater Rani Piyasa, Mou and Pori Moni, Alom could not give an “appropriate answer”.

Detectives let him go after acknowledging his mistakes and assuring DB that he would not repeat such activities, Faruque said.
