Police and SPBn form committees to probe into SPBn Atiqur's death
Special Security & Protection Battalion (SPBn) official Nayek Md Atiqur Rahman died after being shot by his own weapon while at work at the Ganabhaban on Friday. Police have sent the firearm to the Criminal Investigation Department’s (CID) forensic unit to determine whether it was a suicide or an accidental firing. SPBn have formed a five member committee headed by the additional superintendent of police and police have formed a three member committee headed by the additional deputy inspector general of police to investigate the matter, according to SPBn 2 Commanding Officer Iqbal Hossain. Atiqur was shot at the Ganabhaban’s north gate around 11:45pm on Friday. Another ASI who was 10 or 12 yards behind him gathered others and rushed him to Dhaka Medical College Hospital (DMCH). Atiqur died at around 1:30pm yesterday. Confirming this information yesterday evening, Sher-e-Bangla Nagar police station Officer-in-Charge GG Biswas said “Atiqur was killed by his own weapon. We will now investigate whether it is a suicide or an accident.” He added that an unnatural death case had been filed with Sher-e-Bangla Nagar police station and Atikur's weapon had been sent to the CID forensic lab to determine how it happened. Dhaka Medical College Forensic Medicine Department head Dr Shohel Mahmud said the shot which killed Atiqur had been a clean one. The bullet had entered from the front on the right side of chest and had exited from the back. Atiqur’s older brother Mahmudul Hassan said police had handed over Atiqur’s body after the autopsy and his wife Sharmin Akter and one and half year old daughter Tisha, along with the rest of his family, were set on taking his body back to his home village in Hatiya, Noakhali for burial. SPBn 2 Commanding Officer Iqbal Hossain said more information could be shared once the investigations were over and both committees had handed in their reports.
