Darus Salam, the driver of a vehicle suspected to be involved in the hit-and-run case of mountaineer Reshma Nahar Ratna, gave his confessional statement before a Dhaka court on Sunday.

Dhaka Metropolitan Magistrate Devdas Chandra Adhikari recorded the confessional statement on Sunday.

Confirming the matter, Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Court’s General Recording Officer, Sub-Inspector Md Asad, told Dhaka Tribune: “Darus Salam is a deputy director of Bangladesh Bank. 

“In his confessional statement, he said his driver was on leave on that day which is why he was driving his car during the incident.”

Earlier, the investigation officer of the case and also Sher-e-Bangla Nagar police station Sub-Inspector (SI) Mubarak Ali produced Darus Salam before the court.

The accused gave the confessional statement in court, before being sent to jail from there.

Following his arrest on Thursday, Darus Salam was interrogated at Sher-e-Bangla Nagar police station regarding the hit-and-run case.

On 18 August, police arrested another driver, Md Nayeem, and seized the vehicle he was driving on charges of running over and killing mountaineer Reshma.

On August 7, Reshma Nahar Ratna, 33, was crushed under the wheels of a car while cycling on the Crescent Lake Road near the parliament building in Dhaka.

The mountaineer, who was also a teacher at Ayub Ali Government Primary School located near Dhaka’s New Market, was buried at her village in Lohagara, Narail, on August 8.

Reshma's brother-in-law, Md Monir Hossain, filed a case regarding Reshma’s death with Sher-e-Bangla Nagar police station on the day of the incident. 

Monir said Reshma had been a vocal proponent of road safety on social media and rode a bicycle as it was pollution-free.
