SC stays withdrawal of Sakhipur UNO, OC
Hearing two separate pleas lodged by the two officials, Chamber Judge Justice Hasan Foez Siddique passed the stay order for four weeks and asked the plaintiffs to move regular leave-to-appeal plea. Earlier on October 18, an HC bench ordered the government to withdraw UNO Mohammad Rafiqul Islam, who conducted the mobile court, and OC Mohammad Maksudul Alam and post them outside Dhaka Division for the sake of investigation. The HC asked the home secretary, public administration secretary and inspector general of police to comply with the order. The court had also acquitted Tangail’s ninth-grader Sabbir Shikder of all charges declaring the mobile court’s verdict illegal that sentenced him of two years’ imprisonment for allegedly threatening Tangail-8 lawmaker Anupam Shajahan Joy on Facebook. The HC delivered the verdict in a suo-moto rule after a newspaper reported that the boy was sentenced under the hugely controversial section 57 of the ICT Act. The court also asked to consider Sabbir’s statement given on September 27 before the court describing the torture inflicted on him by police. Tangail’s chief judicial magistrate was instructed to investigate into the incident on the basis of that statement. Sabbir had testified that plainclothes police picked him up from home on the night of September 16 and took him to the police station. There the OC showed him a mobile phone and asked what he had written on it. When he denied having written that, he was blindfolded, beaten up and threatened to be killed ‘accidentally getting caught in crossfire’. Sabbir then confessed under duress. From the police station, he was taken to the lawmaker Anupam Shajahan’s residence where he was beaten up for the second time with sticks. From the Shahjahan’s residence, Sabbir was taken to UNO Mohammad Rafiqul Islam who also kicked him before sentencing. The schoolboy was sent to jail after being convicted by the UNO. Earlier, the lawmaker filed a general diary (GD) with the police station alleging that someone threatened him on Facebook.
