Ex-SP Babul shown arrested in another DSA case
A court in Chattogram today showed former Superintendent of Police (SP) Babul Akhter arrested following a petition filed by Police Bureau of Investigation (PBI) in another Digital Security Act case.
Chattogram Additional Metropolitan Magistrate Muhammad Abdul Halim granted the plea in presence of Babul Akhtar.
Naima Sultana, PBI Chattogram Metro's superintendent of police, filed the case under the DSA and Special Powers Act with Khulshi Police Station on October 17, CMP Additional Deputy Commissioner (Prosecution) Md Kamrul Hasan said.
The other accused in the case are Babul's father Md Abdul Wadud Mia and brother Md Habibur Rahman Labu.
Earlier on September 27, PBI chief Banaj Kumar Majumdar filed the other case accusing four people including Babul Akhter of making ongoing investigation into Mitu murder questionable, spreading false information and throwing abusive words.
US expatriate and youtuber Elias Hossain along with Babul's father and brother were made accused in this case. Of them, Elias was made the prime accused in the case.
On November 10, Dhaka Metropolitan Magistrate Md Ashek Imam ordered to show Babul arrested in the case filed by PBI Chief Banaj Kumar
On May 12, 2021, the PBI submitted its final report and arrested Babul Akhter in another case filed by Mitu's father and since then he has been in prison
Babul Akhter filed a no-confidence motion against the PBI report on October 14, 2021.
On November 3 last year, a Chattogram Court rejected the final report of PBI in the murder case and ordered it to conduct further investigation.
PBI in an investigation found Babul's involvement in his wife's murder.
On September 25 this year, a Chattogram court rejected a plea filed by Babul seeking its permission to file a case against six officials of PBI, including its chief Banaj Kumar Majumdar for torturing him in police custody.
