Ctg court orders further probe

A court here ordered the Chittagong Metropolitan Police (CMP) authorities to conduct further investigation into the case filed in connection with attacking journalist Zahid Al Amin.
Judicial Metropolitan Magistrate Mohammad Abdur Rab made the order on Sunday following a petition filed by the plaintiff, a press release said.
The court also ordered the CMP authorities to complete the investigation by March 27.
A group of unruly intern doctors and employees of Chittagong Medical College Hospital (CMCH) beat Zahid Al Amin, the then staff reporter of the daily Nayadiganta, Chittagong bureau and now an assistant editor of Dhaka based English weekly -- The Our Time, when he went there to discharge professional duties on July 21, 2005.
The plaintiff's lawyers argued before the court that Panchlaish police investigated the case sluggishly and gave final report of the case with a motive to relieve the accused from the charges defying the earlier court order to probe the case by a higher police officer.
