3 Ctg cops sued over 'attempted rape'
Bringing allegation of attempted rape, a woman lodged a case against three cops including the officer-in-charge of Lohagara Police Station in Chittagong yesterday afternoon.
A police informant was also sued in the case, said court sources.
The accused are OC Md Shajahan of the police station, Sub-inspector Soliaman Patwari, Assistant Sub-inspector Fakrul Islam and police informant Jasim Uddin.
Taking the case in its cognizance, Judge Roksana Parveen of the Chittagong Women and Children Repression Prevention Tribunal-2 ordered for a judicial enquiry, said the complainant's lawyer.
According to the case statement, on May 12, police went to Adhunagar area of Lohagara to arrest an accused in a sabotage case. As they were in plainclothes, his sister-in-law tried to stop them. Following that, the four physically assaulted and attempted to rape her.
Contacted, OC Shajahan said the family members attacked them while they went to the area to arrest the accused. Now, to divert the incident, the false case was lodged, he said.
