Violating Female Cops, Negligence of Duty

Two OCs, 2 constables in Dinajpur closed

Two officers in charge (OC) and two constables of three police stations in Dinajpur have been closed on charge of different crimes and laxity in performing their duties, said sources of Dinajpur police department.
The accused policemen are Birampur police station OC ATM Aminul Islam, Chirirbandar police station OC Rezaul Karim, and constables Mokhlesur Rahman and Hafizur Rahman of Nawabganj police station.
ATM Aminul Islam, OC of Birampur police station, was closed on January 12 for violating three women constables at dead of night while Md Rezaul Karim, OC of Chirirbandar police station, was closed on January 20 for allegedly siding with local cattle lifters.
Constables Md Mokhlesur Rahman and Hafizur Rahman of Nawabganj upazila of Dinajpur were closed as the district police administration found their alleged negligence during an overnight highway robbery on January 19 when the robbers looted at least 25 vehicles on Dinajpur-Dhaka highway at Soila in Nawabganj upazila.
Md Mostafizur Rahman, ASP of Dinajpur, confirmed the action against the three police personnel.
At around 3:30am on January 12, Birampur police station OC ATM Aminul Islam had three female constables wake up and asked them to go to his residence in the police station complex, police station sources said, adding that the OC later called them one by one inside his room and violated them.
The next morning, the three female constables informed Dinajpur Superintendent of Police (SP) Md Moinul Islam of the matter over mobile and the SP arranged bringing them to Dinajpur Police Lines.
The three abused constables were seen crying as they were returning to the police lines, sources said.
A one-member probe team led by Mostafizur Rahman, additional SP (ASP) of Dinajpur, found the OC guilty.
"We found the allegation of violating the two female constables by the OC true. The report has been sent to the police headquarters in Dhaka and they will take decision in this regard," said the ASP.
On Thursday evening, the villagers, aggrieved over frequent cattle lifting in Chirirbandar upazila, attacked the rice mill of Md Abdul Gani at Ghantagharh village, alleging that the place is used for hiding lifted cattle.
Hearing the incident, a police team led by Chirirbandar OC Md Rezaul Karim rushed to the spot. But the OC allegedly hurled abuses at the protesters, triggering serious protest from the villagers.
Later, ASP (Dinajpur Sadar Circle) Md Farukh Hossain and Chirirbandar Upazila Nirbahi Officer Md Amirul Islam went to the spot and pacified the protesters, saying that the OC will be closed.
At least 10 cattle, allegedly lifted from different places, were also recovered from the said rice mill and taken to Chirirbandar police station.
ASP Farukh Hossain and SP Moinul Islam could not be contacted for their comments over the action against the OC as they were not receiving the phone calls.
Sources, however, confirmed that Borhan Uddin, a sub inspector of Chirirbandar police station, was appointed as acing the OC there on Friday, replacing Rezaul Karim.
