An angry mob mercilessly beat up a police informant for pretending to be a magistrate and attempting extortion in Bandar upazila of Narayanganj

Two assistant sub-inspectors (ASIs) of Narayanganj Bandar police station were withdrawn on allegations of extortion and were adjusted to the police lines on Sunday.

They are Aminul and Anwar.

Bandar police station Officer-in-Charge (OC) Rafiqul Islam said the withdrawal was made pending an official investigation.

According to sources, an angry mob mercilessly beat up a police informant for pretending to be a magistrate and attempting extortion in Bandar upazila of Narayanganj on Saturday evening.

Two assistant sub-inspectors (ASIs) of Bandar police station who reportedly were assisting in the misdeeds, managed to escape the scene.

Local sources said police informant Shameem, introducing himself as a magistrate, went to Sabdi to collect money from makeshift shops along the Brahmaputra River. 

At one stage, local shopkeepers wanted to see his identity card. When Shameem failed to show his ID card, the angry mob gave him a good thrashing.

ASIs Aminul and Anwar of Bandar Police Station who were also present there, quickly left the place sensing trouble. 

Later, police rescued Shameem and took him into custody.

Locals alleged that Shameem would extort graft money from the shops with the support and assistance of ASIs Aminul and Anwar.

Inspector (Investigation) Azharul Islam said they detained Shameem following complaints by locals. They will also investigate whether the police have any links to the alleged extortion, he added.
