PROSECUTION TO ‘VEHEMENTLY OPPOSE’ BAIL OF SONAGAZI OC: AG
Attorney General Mahbubey Alam yesterday said his office will vehemently oppose the bail petition of former officer-in-charge (OC) of Sonagazi Police Station Moazzem Hossain in the case filed over recording a statement of madrasa student Nusrat Jahan Rafi.
“A police officer reportedly recorded a statement of Nusrat Jahan Rafi, which is a heinous offence. Lawyers of my office are prepared to seriously oppose his bail petition,” the attorney general said while talking to journalists at his office on Supreme Court premises, reports our staff correspondent.
Moazzem filed a petition with the High Court on May 29 seeking anticipatory bail in a case filed on charges of recording a statement of Nusrat and circulating the video clip on social media.
