Asaduzzaman Khan Kamal said OC Moazzem Hossain is in Bangladesh

Home Minister Asaduzzaman Khan Kamal has said Feni's Sonagazi police station's former Officer-in-Charge (OC) Moazzem Hossain is in the country. 

“There is no possibility for his escape. He will soon be arrested,” he said on Wednesday.

He said: “It is not right that former OC Moazzem Hossain has not been caught. We are trying to arrest him. All ways for him to escape from the country have been closed.  He is in the country, and he will soon be arrested.”

According to case details, Nusrat went to Sonagazi model police station to file a case against Sonagazi Islamia Fazil (Degree) Madrasa Principal Sirajuddaula, on March 27, for sexually assaulting her the day before.

Moazzem recorded a video of her statement—without her consent—asking her offensive and insulting questions. The video then surfaced on various social media platforms. It was alleged that Moazzem had uploaded the video.

Moazzem, whose voice was audible in the video, appeared unconcerned about Nusrat’s complaints and said the sexual assault was not a major incident. He asked Nusrat to go home, and assured her he would take steps in accordance with her written complaint. However, no action was taken against Sirajuddaula.

Nusrat, 18—an Alim examinee—was set on fire by Sirajuddaula’s followers on April 6 for refusing to withdraw the rape attempt case her family had filed against him. She died from her injuries four days later.
