Members of Rapid Action Battalion (Rab) on Thursday night arrested a woman from the city’s Dhanmondi area for spreading rumour on social networking site Facebook to instigate the recent student movement for road safety.

The arrestee was identified as Mahzabin, 28, wife of Mohammad Riasat.

Tipped off, a team of Rab-2 raided a house at West Dhanmondi and arrested her for instigating people during the students movement through uploading audio clips, posting provocative status and false photo, said a Rab press release.
