Senior Correspondent: Nobody cannot provide information leading to trace the whereabouts of the former Officer-in-Charge (OC) of Sonagazi police station Moazzem Hossain, who still remains at large.
A team of Police Bureau of Investigation (PBI) is trying to arrest OC Moazzem based on information that he is currently in Dhaka.
Feni’s Sonagazi circle Additional Superintendent of Police (ASP) Shafiqul Ahmed Bhuiyan told risingbd.com on Tuesday that a team is currently working in Dhaka to apprehend OC Moazzem.
Surveillance teams have already been assigned at probable locations where he might show up; his ancestral home in Jessore, as well as his residence in Comilla have also been searched thoroughly. Moazzem’s phone number is also under surveillance to trace his whereabouts.
On April 16, Dhaka Cybercrime Tribunal issued an arrest warrant against Moazzem for recording the statement of the victim on video, and spreading it on social media.
The OC has been absconding since then.
Nusrat Jahan Rafi, 18, who was an Alim examinee, was set on fire by the followers of Sonagazi Islamia Fazil (Degree) Madrasa Principal Sirajuddaula on April 6 for refusing to withdraw the rape attempt case that her family had filed against him. She died from the injuries four days later.
According to the case details, the victim went to the Sonagazi Model police station to file a case against Sirajuddaula on March 27 for sexually assaulting her the day before.
Moazzem recorded a video of her statement without her consent, while asking her offensive, and insulting questions. The video then emerged on various social media platforms. It was alleged that Moazzem had put up the video.
