Salma Begum, mother of slain Rayhan Ahmed, has demanded the arrest of everyone involved in her son’s murder by ensuring the preservation of all evidence from the night of the incident.

She made the demand in a press conference at her house in Neharipara of Sylhet city on Saturday.

On the day of the incident, Rayhan was wearing a t-shirt and blue trousers but when he was brought to the hospital, he was seen wearing clothes that did not fit his body, she said.

Salma Begum said police are yet to hand over her son’s mobile phone and wallet.

“They killed my son within four hours,” she said, demanding the arrest of officers who helped Sub-Inspector Akbar flee.

After the autopsy, doctors said there were 111 injury marks on Rayhan’s body and two of his nails were pulled out.

“I’m not doubting the police investigation as they have already arrested SI Akbar. But still, it’s not clear why they killed my innocent boy,” the mother said.

“Assistant Sub-Inspector Ashek Elahi and other policemen are yet to confess to their crimes. So, I’m afraid that I won’t get justice,” she said.

On October 11, 34-year-old Rayhan, a resident of Akharia in Sylhet city, was beaten to death in police custody, his family said.

His wife Tahmina Akter Tanni filed a case at Kotwali police station the following day accusing a number of unidentified people.

Four policemen, including the then in-charge of Bandarbazar Police outpost Akbar, were suspended on October 12. Three policemen were also withdrawn the same day.

The case was later transferred to the Police Bureau of Investigation.

Meanwhile, the Sylhet Metropolitan Police (SMP) formed a committee to look into the death of Rayhan. After a primary investigation, it found some policemen guilty of foul play.

On October 22, former SMP Commissioner Golam Kibria was transferred over widespread criticism of the role of police in Rayhan’s death.
