Arrest warrant issued against former Sonagazi OC
A special tribunal today issued arrest warrant against former Officer-in-Charge (OC) of Sonagazi Police Station Moazzem Hossain in a case lodged for recording Nusrat Jahan Rafi’s statement on video and spreading it online.
The tribunal passed the order a day after Police Bureau of Investigation (PBI) submitted its probe report over the incident.
Judge Mohammad As-Shams Jaglul Hossain of Bangladesh Cyber Tribunal passed the order accepting the charges brought against the disgraced police officer.
Investigation officer and PBI senior ASP Rima Sultana filed the report at Bangladesh Cyber Tribunal yesterday, stating that they have found the allegations brought against the police official true.
Supreme Court lawyer Barrister Syed Sayedul Haque Suman filed the case on April 15 with Bangladesh Cyber Tribunal this afternoon under section 26, 29 and 31 of Digital Security Act (DSA).
Recording the testimony of the plaintiff, Judge Mohammad As-Shams Jaglul Hossain of Bangladesh Cyber Tribunal asked deputy inspector general of Police Bureau of Investigation (PBI) to submit probe report on April 30.
According to the allegations, the former Sonagazi OC summoned Nusrat as she filed a case against Sonagazi Islamia Senior Fazil Madrasa principal Sirajuddoula for sexual harassment.
The police official in his room started quizzing her about the incident and was recording the whole incident in absence of any lawyer or female cop. He was seen scolding her and asking Nusrat indecent questions. Moazzem later posted the video on different social media sites.
Nusrat was set on fire on April 6 by Sirajuddoula’s stooges and she succumbed to her injuries at Dhaka Medical College Hospital on April 10.
Nusrat had accused Sirajuddoula of harassing her sexually on March 27 while she was exposed to his extreme vengeance on April 6 as she went to the madrasa to appear in Alim examination.
A group of masked youths, later found to be the cronies of the disgraced principal, took Nusrat to the rooftop of the madrasa and set her on fire after tying her with her scarf.
