Rangpur OC accused of humiliating female ward councillor

Probe body formed

Police formed a probe committee yesterday after an officer allegedly humiliated a female ward councillor in Rangpur.

The two-member committee headed by Rangpur Metropolitan Police Additional Deputy Commissioner Shamima Parvin was asked to submit its report as early as possible, official sources said.

Altaf Hossain, assistant commissioner of metropolitan police, is another member of the probe body.

On Friday, the female ward councillor felt embarrassed as OC Rezaul Karim talked about her appearance in an inappropriate way when she went to Kotwali Police Station to inquire about a rape case, said her fellows.

Later, she informed the incident to the city mayor and other ward councillors on Sunday.

All the councillors led by Mayor Mostafizar Rahman Mostafa met Police Commissioner Abdul Alim Mahmud on that day and demanded exemplary punishment for the OC.

OC Rezaul Karim did not respond to phone calls from this correspondent. However, his colleagues said he had been on leave since Monday.
