Bangladesh spinner Arafat Sunny is in police custody after a complaint was filed against him under the country's Information and Communication Technology (ICT) Act at Mohammadpur Police Station on January 5.

"He [Sunny] is in custody and the police are supposed to take him to court today," BCB's media committee chairman Jalal Yunus told ESPNcricinfo on Sunday, January 22.

According to Daily Star, the deputy commissioner of Dhaka Metropolitan Police (Tejgaon Division) Biplob Kumar Sarker said a request would be made in court to hold Sunny for five days.

Sunny has played 16 ODIs and 10 T20Is for Bangladesh since his debut in 2014; his last appearance was in the World T20 in India in March 2016. Sunny was reported for a suspect action in that tournament, which was later found to be illegal. He was cleared to resume bowling in September 2016, but was once again reported during the BPL in November that year.
