Another charge-sheet was filed against him on Thursday
Police have pressed charges against Erfan Selim, son of Awami League MP Haji Md Salim, and four others in a case filed over the assault of an officer of the navy in Dhaka.
This is the second charge-sheet against him since Thursday.
Dhaka Metropolitan Police’s (DMP) Additional Commissioner AKM Hafiz Akhter confirmed the latest development, reports Bangla Tribune.
The Ramna zone detective branch of the DMP submitted the charge-sheet before a Dhaka court after the five people including Erfan were found guilty of beating up the navy officer.
A complaint was lodged in this regard with the court on February 8.
Earlier, police on Thursday pressed charges against Erfan Salim, son of Awami League MP Haji Md Selim, and three others over the murder attempt on the navy officer.
On October 25 last year, a video of Lieutenant Wasif Ahmad Khan of Bangladesh Navy demanding justice in public went viral on social media after he was assaulted by Erfan, his bodyguard, chauffeur, and a few accomplices.
The attack took place at the Kalabagan bus stop area at around 7:45pm, when the military officer protested after his motorcycle was hit by Erfan’s car, which had a parliament sticker on it.
A day later, a case was filed with Dhanmondi police station accusing the four people.
Erfan was later arrested and jailed for a year after a raid by a mobile court found walkie-talkies and alcohol in his house, causing him to be suspended as councillor of Ward No 30 of Dhaka South City Corporation.
