Three suspects confessed to raping, killing the girl. However, when the girl was found alive and well after a month, the case took an interesting turn

The investigation officer (IO) of an abduction case-- in which a girl who was thought to have been raped and murdered before being found alive 51 days after her disappearance from Narayanganj--has been closed and attached to the district’s police lines.

Sub-inspector (SI) Shamim Al Mamun of Narayanganj Sadar police station has been closed after allegations were made that he had tortured the accused in remand and forced them to make confessional statements in court.

Shamim is now attached at the city's Masdah Police Line as per order of the District Superintendent of Police Jayedul Alam, and SI Abdul Hai has been appointed as the new IO of the case, police sources said.

“We formed a three-member probe committee to investigate the matter and directed them to file a report within three working days,” said Jayedul Alam, superintendent of police.

Amjad Hossain, father of one of the accused in the case, Md Abdullah, said a conspiracy had been hatched to implicate his son and two others in a false case.

“I provided Tk10,000 to the policemen in bribe money and still they tortured my son. My money and reputation are at stake but I want justice for my innocent son,” said the father.

On August 25, the father of the girl sought the release of the three accused persons who are in jail in connection with an abduction case filed over his daughter's disappearance, as he got his daughter back alive the previous day.

On the same day, a press briefing by the police noted that the girl was not raped or murdered. She was found well in health and married to her alleged boyfriend Iqbal. They had also started living in a rented house in Bandar Kushiyara area.

The case took an interesting turn when three suspects of the incident made confessional statements before the court that questioned the integrity of the investigation, said a police source seeking anonymity.

Meanwhile, the family members of the accused have been claiming that police had beaten their sons in remand and forced them to make their confessional statements. Police, however, denied the allegation.
