A Rangpur court has placed policeman Hasan Ali on a four-day remand in connection with the death of physically challenged rickshaw puller Nazmul Islam in Rangpur.

 Besides, the court has also allowed the interrogation of Hasan Ali's wife Sathi Begum at the jail gate.

Judge Fazle Elahi Khan of the Rangpur Chief Judicial Magistrate's Court issued the order at noon yesterday.

Assistant Deputy Commissioner of Metropolitan Police (Kotwali Zone) Altaf Hossain confirmed the news.

Earlier, the police constable and his wife were arrested on the charge of murdering the physically challenged rickshaw puller in Rangpur city.

Locals said rickshaw puller Nazmul Islam was living in a rented house at Ashratpur. He used to drive a battery-powered rickshaw on rent as he had problems with his legs.

The rickshaw belonged to constable Hasan Ali, who is working at the Rangpur Police Training Center. He also rented a house in Ashratpur Courtpara area in the city and used to live with his family.

Nazmul's rickshaw was stolen on Tuesday night. He tried hard to recover the rickshaw and return it to owner Hasan Ali. But police constable Hasan Ali called him home and accused him of being a thief. He also subjected Nazmul to physical torture.

At one stage, the health condition of Nazmul deteriorated severely. Sensing trouble, the couple hanged the victim inside their house with a rope around his neck. Later his death was passed off as a suicide.
