3 Gazipur detectives withdrawn for 'beating up nurse'
Three detectives were withdrawn today for allegedly beating up a senior nurse of a hospital in Gazipur after they failed to arrest a suspect in an abduction case from the hospital.

Injured nurse Abul Fazal, 30, was admitted at Shaheed Tajuddin Ahmed Medical College Hospital in critical condition.

A team of DB police went to the hospital’s emergency unit around 10:00pm yesterday to visit an accused in a case, who was undergoing treatment at the hospital under their custody, said Amir Hossain, officer-in-charge of DB police.
As they reached the hospital, the team came to know that Rana, a suspect of an abduction case went to the hospital for treatment due to his illness.
