After the death of Mushtaq, the district administration formed a two-member probe committee with Gazipur's executive magistrates Umme Habiba Farzana and Md Wasiuzzaman Chowdhury.

Writer Mushtaq Ahmed, arrested under the Digital Security Act, died in prison on February 25.

He was arrested in May last year from his Dhaka residence.
