Raihan's mother starts hunger strike seeking justice

The mother of Raihan Ahmed, who died in custody of Sylhet's  Bandarbazar police outpost on October 11, went on a fast unto death on Sunday demanding justice for her son.

Raihan's mother Salma Begum and some other relatives began the hunger strike in front of the police outposts around 11am.

Accusing SI Akbar Hossain Bhuiyan of the killing her son, Salma Begum demanded immediate arrest of the police outpost in-charge.

"I won't leave the place until the arrest of SI Akbar and his associates. They killed my son and now let them shoot me to death," she said.

Raihan, 34, a resident of Akharia in Sylhet city, was allegedly beaten to death in police custody at Bandarbazar police outpost on October 11.

The authorities on October 12 suspended four policemen, including the in-charge of Bandarbazar police outpost SI Akbar Hossain, in connection with the death.

Of them, constables Harunur Rashid and Titu Chandra Das had been placed on a five-day remand each in the case.
