3 years over, Milon's parents still cry for justice

No charge sheet yet as 'cops involved'

Our correspondent, Noakhali

Three years over, Companiganj police are yet to submit charge sheet in the sensational Milon murder case.

“They are delaying the process of submitting the charge sheet allegedly as some policemen are involved in the murder case,” said Abul Kashem and Kohinoor Begum, parents of slain Shamsuddin Milon, 17, on the eve of his third death anniversary.

We continuously received threats from the accused in the case who is now on bail, alleged the family members of the deceased.  

On July 27 in 2011, Milon was returning home after receiving Tk 14,000 by his father sent from abroad.

On the way, he went to Charkakra High School premises in Charkakra union of Companiganj upazila to meet his cousin Chumki, a Class VI student at the institution.

While waiting in front of the school, UP member Md Jamal Uddin along with some villagers caught Milon, suspecting him a robber.

They beat up Milion mercilessly, leaving him dead on the spot and handed the body to police who kept it with five bodies of other robbers in front of the Companiganj police station.

After publication of a news over the issue in several newspapers, the authorities suspended OC Rafique Ullah, SI Akram Uddin Sheikh, constables Abdur Rahim and Hema Ranjan Chakma of the police station and formed a body to investigate the incident.

Mysteriously all the four policemen were transferred to different parts of the country after formation of the probe body, said Milon's mother Kohinoor Begum.

Later, a case was filed with a court, accusing Charkakra UP member Jamal Uddin, Nizam Uddin Manik and 20 other unidentified people.

Three months after filing of the case, it was transferred to Detective Branch of police, said Kohinoor Begum.

Contacted, SP Elias Sharif said the process of submitting the charge sheet was taking some time 'to make justice'.

If the probe body found the four policemen guilty, they would be made accused in the case, he added.
