Death of Rafi
Court asks PBI to probe case against ex-Sonagazi OC
Bangladesh Cyber Tribunal on Monday asked the Police Bureau of Investigation (PBI) to probe the case filed against former Sonagazi Model Police Station chief under the Digital Security Act.
Tribunal Judge Ash-Shams Jaglul Hussein passed the order after accepting the case. It also asked the PBI to submit the probe report with the court on April 30.
Earlier in the day, Barrister Sayedul Haque Sumon filed the case with the tribunal against OC Moazzem accusing him of recording and spreading a video on social media with madrasa student Nusrat Jahan Rafi's statement.
UNB adds: According to the case statement, he called Rafi to the police station on March 27 after she accused her madrasa principal Sirajuddoula of sexually harassing her.
Moazzem asked offensive questions during questioning.
The OC was withdrawn on April 10 after Nusrat's family complained that he was not cooperating with them.
Nusrat, a student of Feni's Sonagazi Islamia Senior Fazil Madrasa, was set afire on April 6 allegedly for refusing to withdraw the case against the principal.
She died five days later at the Dhaka Medical College Hospital.
