Accused include senior superintendent of Chittagong Central Jail

The wife of a man serving a life sentence has approached a court in the port city accusing five officials, including the senior superintendent of Chittagong Central Jail, of torturing her husband.

Parvin Akter, the wife of the murder convict Md Shamim, filed the complaint against the five in the court of Chittagong Metropolitan Magistrate Sarwar Jahan on Thursday. The hearing is slated for Tuesday, said Bench Secretary Md Bakhtiar.

Those named in the complaint are Senior Jail Superintendent Shafiqul Islam, Jailer Dewan Mohammad Tariqul Islam, Deputy Jailer Md Saimur, and jail guards Sabuj Dash and Md Emdad Hossain.

According to the complaint, Shamim was admitted to the Chittagong jail hospital on July 17. However, when he demanded food, the five jail officials beat him up. The next day, he was shifted to Comilla Central Jail.

On November 11, during routine attendance, Shamim apprised the Chittagong court of his alleged ordeal.

Senior Jail Superintendent Shafiqul could not be reached for comment.

On April 24, 2007, Shamim was sentenced to death in a murder case. However, five years later, a higher court commuted his sentence to life imprisonment.
