AG's office to submit documents on Sultana’s death before HC at 2pm
The attorney general's office will submit relevant documents regarding the death of Sultana Jasmine in Rab custody, including the medical certificate on the cause of her death, before the High Court at 2:00pm today.
The medical certificate issued by Rajshahi Medical College Hospital mentioned "irreversible Cardio-respiratory failure due to intra-cerebral haemorrhage" as the cause of her death, a source at the AG office said.
Attorney General AM Amin Uddin told The Daily Star, "I don't know what has been mentioned in the report as the cause of death of Sultana Jasmine. We will submit the relevant papers to the High Court at 2:00pm."
Earlier in the day, the attorney general told the HC bench of Justice Farah Mahbub and Justice Ahmed Sohel that his office received documents from the authorities concerned of the government about Sultana.
On Monday, the bench expressed grave concern and anger as the state has not filed any case after the death of Sultana Jasmine in custody of Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) in Naogaon.
The HC bench also raised some questions about the death of Sultana Jasmine of Naogaon, who died in Rab custody on March 24.
Sultana Jasmine, a union-level land employee in Naogaon who died in the custody of Rapid Action Battalion on Friday, had suffered a head injury along with brain haemorrhages but what caused it all remains unexplained.
The court ordered the attorney general's office to submit relevant documents over this matter to this court by today.
