Naimul Abrar’s death

Police quiz Kishor Alo Editor Anisul

STAFF REPORTER, Dhaka

Police have quizzed several witnesses including Kishor Alo magazine editor Anisul Hoque yesterday over the death of Naimul Abrar Rahat (14), a student of Dhaka Residential Model College (DRMC). Naimul, a student of Class IX, died of electrocution from a power generator during a programme organised by Kishor Alo on the college premises on Friday last. Confirming the development, Officer-in-Charge (OC) of Mohammadpur Police Station, GG Biswas told The Independent that as a part of the investigation, Anisul was interrogated alongside the other witnesses. “Since, a case of unnatural death has been filed, we have the right to question anyone related to the case as part of the investigation,” he said adding that “We can interrogate anybody to find out what really happened that day.” Meanwhile, in a Facebook post, editor of the daily Prothom Alo’s youth supplement, Anisul expressed condolence over the death of Naimul Abrar.

He, however, claimed that he was unaware of why the student was not taken to the nearby state-run hospital. On Saturday, students protested against Naimul’s death and formed a human chain in front of the college. They blamed mismanagement and negligence by the authorities concerned for the death. During the protest, students issued a 72-hour ultimatum to the college and Prothom Alo authorities to meet their four-point charter of demands.

The college authorities have formed a three-member committee to probe into the incident. The committee has to submit its report within seven days.

Naimul was electrocuted behind the stage that was set up for the “Ki Ananda” programme. The organisers took him to Mohakhali’s Universal Medical College Hospital, where doctors declared him dead.

Later, the police handed over the body to the family without an autopsy on their request. Naimul’s family, which hails from Noakhali district’s Sonamuri upazila, resides in Dhaka’s Agargaon area.
