Faridpur OC withdrawn for ‘beating up’ freedom fighter

The officer-in-charge (OC) of Faridpur’s Saltha Police Station has been withdrawn for “beating up” and “verbally abusing” a freedom fighter.

The OC, Mohammad Ali Jinnah, was withdrawn from the police station and shifted to Faridpur Police Lines on Wednesday, Md Alimuzzaman, superintendent of police in Faridpur, said.

“No evidence showed that the OC had physically assaulted the freedom fighter. However, he was withdrawn considering the local situation,” Alimuzzaman said.

OC Mohammad Ali “assaulted” freedom fighter Mosharraf Hossain while he was trying to stop a clash between two groups in Khalishapatti village on Friday. 

The freedom fighters held a protest rally at the upazila’s Muktijoddha Complex the next day and gave a 24-hour ultimatum to withdraw the OC.

Police sources said a three-member probe committee, headed by Additional Superintendent of Police (Administration and Crime) Jamal Pasha, was formed over the issue.

The committee submitted its report to SP Alimuzzaman on Tuesday night.
