Formal trial of former officer-in-charge (OC) of Sonagazi police station Moazzem Hossain has started, in the case filed over illegally recording Feni Madrasah student Nusrat’s statement, and spreading it online.

The deposition of prosecution witnesses was taken on Wednesday. Acting Judge Sheikh Nazmul Hasan of Cyber Tribunal (Bangladesh) Dhaka recorded the testimony of Barrister Syed Sayedul Haque Suman, who was the plaintiff of the case. 

After his deposition, defence counsel Faruque Ahmed started cross-examining Suman. Later, the court adjourned the trial proceedings until August 20. 

After framing charges against Moazzem Hossain in the case, the tribunal fixed July 31 for recording the statements of witnesses in the case. 

Moazzem was arrested on June 16, twenty days after a warrant was issued in a case filed against him under Digital Security Act for illegally recording statement of Nusrat and spreading the video recording through online. 

On May 27, the tribunal issued an arrest warrant against Moazzem, a day after the Police Bureau of Investigation (PBI) submitted its probe report over the incident. 

PBI Senior Assistant Superintendent of Police Rima Sultana, also the investigation officer of the case, submitted the report before the Cyber Tribunal on May 26, stating that they have found the allegations brought against the police official to be true. 

Supreme Court lawyer Barrister Syed Sayedul Haque Suman filed the case on April 15 with Cyber Tribunal under section 26, 29 and 31 of Digital Security Act.
