A case was filed against former Chhagalnaiya police in-charge SM Murshed and 10 others for implicating a man in false case and attempting to kill him

A Feni court on Tuesday ordered the district’s police chief to investigate a case filed against 11 policemen, including the former officer-in-charge of Chhagalnaiya police station, and two informants.

They allegedly tried to kill a pickup driver and implicate him in a false drug case last year. The victim had lost a leg during the incident and has been living an inhuman life since then.

Feni Judicial Magistrate Quamrul Hasan took the case into cognizance and ordered the police superintendent to conduct an investigation by an additional superintendent level police officer and submit the report within 15 days.

Gias Uddin Dulal filed the case on Tuesday at Feni Judicial Magistrate Court against former Chhagalnaiya police station in-charge SM Murshed and 10 others for implicating him in a yaba case and attempting to kill him, said Giasuddin Nannu, a counsel of the plaintiff.

The other accused are— sub-inspectors Shahidul Islam, Delwar Hossain, Khorshed Alam, assistant sub-inspectors Firoz Alam and Mahbubul Alam Sarkar, constables Sukanta Barua, Main Uddin, Nurul Amin, Sirajul Islam, Nurul Amin and informers Abul Hashem and Abul Khayer.

The police officers are now posted at different police stations.

According to the case statement, Hashem and Khayer intercepted the soil-laden pick-up van of Gias on January 17 last year and threatened to implicate him in a drug case if he did not give them Tk5 lakh.

When Gias refused to give money, they picked him up in a microbus in the afternoon and took him to Brothers Brick Field. OC Morshed blindfolded him and demanded Tk10 lakh from him.

When Gias refused to pay, the OC threatened him with ‘crossfire’ or extrajudicial killing.

Gias’s mother and sister pleaded with the policemen to take the Tk100,000 they had and release him but the policemen took him to a remote area in Ballavpur village and beat him up.

OC Morshed shot Gias thrice in the right leg, leaving him critically wounded.

He was taken to Chittagong Medical College Hospital where the doctors amputated his leg.

After seven days, Gias was sent to jail in a case filed for possessing 1,400 pieces of yaba pills.

Gias said he has been living an inhuman life since last year which delayed the filing of the case.
