Suspected instigator of Rangpur communal attack arrested, 20-day remand sought
Police have sought for 20 days' remand to interrogate Fazlar Rahman, the suspected mastermind of the communal attack on Hindu houses at Thakurpara, Rangpur. Fazlar was arrested during a police raid on a house in Dhaka's Shyamoli area late Thursday night. He is likely to be produced before the court of Senior Judicial Magistrate Ariful Islam on Monday, Deputy Inspector General (Rangpur range) Khandaker Golam Faruk told reporters that during primary interrogation, Fazlar admitted his involvement in the rampage at the Hindu village. On November 10, more than 30 homes belonging to Hindu families in Rangpur’s Thakurpara village were ransacked and looted before being set on fire by a mob over a rumoured Facebook post. A man was killed when police opened fire to ward off the angry mob that turned violent and launched the arson attack on Hindu homes. Police later filed two cases over the incident at Kotwali and Gangachara police stations. A bit of suspense was created when the police vehicle carrying the accused arrived at the court premises around 4pm on Sunday. Instead of producing him before the court, police took the handcuffed accused to the court prison and hurriedly shut its main gate. Before that, the investigation officers of the two cases – Sub-Inspector Ali and Sub-Inspector Ferdous – arrived at the court premises separately. But they did not respond to any of the queries by the journalists.
