South Tripura Police Superintendent Jal Singh Meena informed that Mainul is booked under sections 500, 504, 505, and section 153 of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) and the IT Act and the FIR was later forwarded to Tripura Police Cyber Crime cell.

Derogatory remarks against PM Modi
Bangladeshi singer Mainul Ahsan Noble had posted a controversial comment on Facebook in Bengali mentioning Prime Minister Narendra Modi, the loose translation of which is, ‘If my scandal does not happen then whose will happen? tea stall owner Narendra Modi’s? Who will watch chaiwala’s scandal? On the other hand, there is huge satisfaction in watching me naked, isn’t it? Otherwise, would the scandal have become so viral?’
The Bangladeshi singer said it is right that his sex scandal had gone viral, as people like to see him naked. He also compared himself with PM Modi in the post, saying there will be no audience for a similar scandal involving the Indian prime minister.
Nobel was referring to photos featuring him in a compromising position with a woman which went viral in August last year. A 16-year-old girl from Gopalganj in Bangladesh had posted the photographs on Facebook, alleging that Nobel had sexually exploited her. She had alleged that he maintained a sexual relationship with her for a long time promising to marry her, but later he left her and become engaged with new girls.
At that time, Nobel had rejected the allegation and had claimed that the photographs were fake and morphed. But now he seemed to be agreeing that the images were genuine. Not only that, now he also seems to be taking pride in the fact that his sex images had gone viral on the internet last year.
Made disrespective remarks against Rabindranath Tagore
In 2019, Mainul was in controversy for making disrespectful remarks against Rabindranath Tagore. In a TV interview, he raised his voice against the Bangladeshi national anthem ‘Amar Sonar Bangla’ that was written by Rabindranath Tagore and said that the Bengal is better portrayed in the writings of Prince Mehmood and not Rabindranath Tagore.
