Court orders for probe report by 7 days as uncle files case
A court here on Wednesday ordered the additional police superintendent to submit a probe report within seven days in a case filed against former OC of Bahubal police station and six others in connection with the suicide of a schoolgirl after rape on September 14.
Judge M Mahtab Uddin of the Women and Children Repression Prevention Tribunal passed the order after a case was filed with the tribunal on Sunday.
M Shah Alam, uncle of victim Marzana Akhter, 15, filed the case. Marzana was a class nine student at a school in Sirajganj.
The accused in the case are former OC of the police station Azizur Rahman Sarkar, sub-inspector Wahidur Rahman, constables Ruhul Amin, Abdul Kadir and Dulal Mia, Kadir's son Masum and Ruhul's son Fahad Hossain.
In his complaint, Shah Alam of Charchala village in Sirajganj, said Fahad raped the niece of sub-inspector Rafiqul Islam at the residential quarters at the PS while Masum also tried to violate her on September 14.
On information, Azizul, now OC of Habiganj Detective Branch of police, and other policemen rushed to the spot.
They asked the girl embarrassing questions. After sometime they took her to the rooftop of the building and touched her private organs in the name of examination, Shah Alam told the court.
The hapless girl jumped from the rooftop as the policemen tried to strip her off, he further said.
Critically injured, Marzana was rushed to Bahubal Upazila Health Complex where she died after a while.
The complainant also said that the OC forced Marzana's aunt Kamrun Nahar to file a case against only Fahad to hide the misdeeds of himself and the other accused.
