The authorities closed the policemen and attached them to the district police line, Abdur Rashid, officer-in-charge of the District Special Branch (SB) of Police, told our Khulna correspondent.
“Some policemen of the Khairabad Baintola police outpost often misbehave with my 10th grader daughter on her way to a coaching center,” Mujibrur Rahman, father of the female student, told our correspondent.
Noticing the incident, his son Tareq Mahmud went to the police outpost to inform the matter to their in-charge, Rahman said.
