DC Sultana Pervin claimed on her facebook post that the mobile court was a routine activity

Former Kurigram Deputy Commissioner (DC) Sultana Pervin has been continuing her false allegations over picking up journalist Ariful Islam Regan in the middle of the night and jailing him through a mobile court.

Sultana published a Facebook status on Tuesday where she claimed that the mobile court was conducted as per District Narcotics Control Office demand.

However, a source at the district office said Executive Magistrate Rintu Bikash Chakma conducted the mobile court on DC Sultana's orders.

Former DC Sultana could not be reached when Dhaka Tribune tried to contact her.

According to DC office, a letter was sent to Kurigram superintendent of police from Executive Magistrate Rintu on March 13.

The letter was sent asking for a police force to conduct a mobile court.

The letter stated that a mobile court would be conducted at 11:00pm that night where seven armed police would be needed.

The copies of the letter were sent to Kurigram additional district magistrate, reserve inspector of police lines, and Nejarot deputy collector (to provide cars).

In her Facebook post, Sultana claimed the mobile court was conducted as a routine activity.

However, Narcotics Control Office Inspector Jahidul Islam said: "We had no requisition. I can't tell anything else."

Former DC Sultana, in her facebook status, said: "I learned about the conduct and order of the mobile court the following morning, on March 14, 2020. Then I asked the executive magistrate about the issue. He informed me that the mobile court was conducted following all the protocols."

Executive Magistrate Rintu commented on the post saying he made some unintentional mistakes which should not be blamed on him.

Former senior judicial magistrate and Supreme Court lawyer Azizul Haque Dulu said: "According to Mobile Court Act 2009 executive magistrates cannot operate a mobile court without district magistrate's written approval. So, DC cannot avoid her responsibilty."

Mystery on Narcotics officials presence

Officials at District Narcotics Control Office are also spreading falsehood regarding their involvement on the issue of journalist Ariful's arrest.

According to mobile court documents, Inspector Jahidul had signed on the document where it stated that Ariful had drugs in his possession.

However when contacted Jahidul said: "I was not present during the incident as I was in Rangpur. I can't say anymore.''
