Death of Ctg Doctor

Charges pressed against five

Police have pressed charges in a case filed with Chandgaon Police Station for provoking Mustafa Murshed Akash, a doctor of Chattogram Medical College Hospital (CMCH), to take his life following domestic issues. 

Sub-inspector Abdul Kader, investigation officer (IO) of the case, submitted the charge sheet against five persons -- including Akash’s wife Tanzila Haque Chowdhury Mitu, her parents and younger sister -- to the court on Monday, said Additional Deputy Commissioner (Prosecution) Md Kamruzzaman.

The charge sheet will be seen by the judge on next date of the case, he said.

A few days ago, Mitu walked out from Chattogram Central Jail on bail. 

Kamruzzaman said the IO suggested to drop the name of another accused Patel -- an Indian citizen living in the USA -- from the charges, as details about him could not be gathered.

Akash, 32, was found dead in his residence at Chandgaon residential area on January 31. Before his death, the physician posted a “suicide note” on his Facebook profile.

Akash’s mother Jobeda Khanam filed a case with Chandgaon Police Station, accusing Mitu and five others of instigating her son to take his life.
