A Joypurhat court yesterday ordered a judicial probe against the officer-in-charge (OC) of Akkelpur Police Station.
The court gave the order after Shewly Begum, wife of Atiqur Rahman of Akkelpur municipality area, filed a case, accusing OC Sirajul Islam under the Women and Children Repression and Prevention Act.
In the case, Shewly stated that police picked her father Md Aybar Hossain and took him to the police station on Monday. After the incident, she along with her family members went to the PS and wanted to know the reason behind picking up her father.
But, the OC forced her relatives out and assaulted her physically.
Aybar Hossain is on bail in a case, said police.
Contacted, the OC said the allegation brought against him is false. However, he did not give any suitable answer to why police detained the father of the woman.
The woman recently filed a case against her husband over domestic violence, said police.
