Home gets moving over detectives' arrest

The home ministry yesterday formed a three-member committee to investigate the incidents relating to the arrest of three Detective Branch (DB) inspectors by National Security Intelligence (NSI) men on charges of receiving bribe on October 6.
Additional Home Secretary (police and politics) Yunusur Rahman will head the committee consisting of Joint Commissioner (crime) Mir Shahidul Islam of Dhaka Metropolitan Police (DMP) and Additional NSI Director (Dhaka Division) Aminul Islam as its two members.
Officials from the home ministry and NSI said the committee was formed upon directives from the Prime Minister's Office (PMO).
Yunusur Rahman said he was verbally informed that he has been made the head of the committee to dig up the facts. He, however, said he was yet to receive the official letter in this connection.
NSI members arrested DB inspectors Shafi Uddin Sheikh, Ruhul Amin, and Gias Uddin when the three officials were allegedly realising bribe money from a person in front of Holy Family Hospital in the city's Moghbazar on October 6.
The three inspectors were later freed from NSI office and suspended by the police high authorities.
The DB inspectors alleged that the NSI men tortured them severely on the spot and at the NSI office.
