Published on: 9:32 pm - Tuesday | August 11, 2020


Barguna’s Bamna Police Station officer-in-charge (OC) M Ilyas Ali Talukder has been withdrawn for assaulting an assistant sub inspector (ASI) in front of hundreds of people.

After withdrawal, the OC was closed to the district police lines on Tuesday.

An investigation committee, led by additional police superintendent M Mofizul Islam, made the recommendation of the OC’s withdrawal.

Earlier on Monday, the assaulted ASI was withdrawn from Bamna Police Station and attached to the police lines.

On August 8, police foiled a human chain programme that was formed demanding the release of Shahedul Islam Sifat, who was arrested after the death of Major (retd) Sinha Mohammad Rashed in police firing in Cox’s Bazar.

At that time, OC Ilyas Hossain slapped the ASI on his face while on duty.
