Charges against Limon yet to be withdrawn

Update : 18 Aug 2013, 05:20 PM

Despite a home ministry order given over a month ago, Limon Hossain is yet to be freed from the charges against him in a Rab case, as the hearing for withdrawal deferred for the second time.

Jhalakathi Chief Judicial Magistrate’s Court, which was set to hear on the withdrawal Sunday, pushed the next date for the hearing to September 8. The hearing was deferred as the chief judicial magistrate was transferred last month and the acting Chief Judicial Magistrate Md Shahidul Islam has no jurisdiction to hear such an appeal, explained public prosecutor M Alam Khan Kalam.

On July 9, the home ministry issued an order to withdraw all charges against Limon in the two cases lodged by Rab. On July 21, the public prosecutor petitioned for the withdrawal.

After a hearing, Special Tribunal 2 accepted the appeal on July 29 to drop the charge against Limon in an arms case.

Charges in the other case for obstructing official duty, attempt to murder and injuring Rab personnel, which is at the Chief Judicial Magistrate’s Court, is yet to be resolved.

On March 23, 2011, Limon was shot in the leg and was arrested by some Rab personnel in an “encounter.” Limon, then a college student, had to undergo an amputation afterwards.

Rab slapped the two cases on Limon on the same year. On the other hand, police on August 14, 2012 secretly filed final report of the case lodged by Henoara claiming they had found no evidence and witnesses against Rab.
