High Court gives 60 days to file the probe report

The High Court has ordered to open a judicial inquiry over allegations of police torture on a college student in Jessore.

Following a virtual hearing over a petition on Monday, Justice JBM Hassan said that the probe should be carried out by a judicial officer not below the rank of district and sessions judge.

The court gave 60 days for filing of the inquiry report before it.

Imran Hossain, a second-year student of Kazi Nazrul Islam Degree College in Jessore was allegedly tortured by police on June 3 without any reason, according to media reports.

In line with the previous order by the court, Jessore civil surgeon filed all relevant medical documents, including a dope test report of Imran to the court on Monday.

Petitioner’s counsel Barrister Humayun Kabir Pallob told Dhaka Tribune after the hearing that the dope test came back as negative.

Pallob said during Monday’s hearing they argued that the previous probe reports submitted by Jessore’s civil surgeon and superintendent of police were not fully accurate as it said Imran was under the influence of drugs. 

Medical reports of Imran filed to the court on Monday said he was not doing well, he told the media.

After hearing a petition filed on June 18, the High Court ordered on June 23 the civil surgeon’s office to submit medical documents of Imran, who is being treated now at a hospital.

Later on June 28, the court asked for a dope test of the victim, which was heard during Monday’s hearing.

Dhaka Tribune reported on June 8 that Imran’s kidney was severely damaged after he was allegedly tortured by the local police.
