Gazipur district administration has formed a two-member probe body to investigate the death of writer Mushtaq Ahmed inside Kashimpur Jail on Thursday evening.
The committee has been asked to submit a report within two days after investigating the matter whether there was negligence behind Mushtaq's treatment.
Gazipur Deputy Commissioner SM Tariqul Islam confirmed this on Friday night.
The members of the committee are executive magistrates Md Wasiuzzaman Chowdhury and Umme Habiba Farzana.
Tariqul said, "The committee has been formed only to investigate if there was any negligence in Mushtaq's treatment."
Writer Mushtaq Ahmed died at about 8:30pm at Kashimpur High Security Prision in Gazipur district. He had been in Kashimpur Jail in a case filed by RAB for his alleged "anti-state activities."
Meanwhile, an autopsy of writer and blogger Mushtaq Ahmed was completed and doctors said there weren't any apparent signs of injuries on his body, according to the forensics department of Shaheed Tajuddin Ahmad Medical College Hospital in Gazipur.
Head of the hospital's forensic department Dr Shafi Mohaimen said: "Apparently there were no signs of injuries on Mushtaq's body. Further details can be disclosed after the autopsy report is submitted."
Syed Bayezid, sub-inspector of Joydevpur Police Station in Gazipur who prepared the inquest report said sores were found in the middle of his back. Reddish-black small spots were found on his right and left hands.
He suspected that the wounds and spots might have occurred while taking the body to the hospital with the ambulance.
