IO testifies in case against OC Moazzem
BSS, Dhaka

The investigation officer (IO) Police Bureau of Investigation (PBI) senior ASP Rima Sultana yesterday testified in a case lodged against former OC of Sonagazi Police Station Moazzem Hossain under Digital Security Act (DSA). After her testimony, defence counsel Faruk Ahammed started cross- examining her and Mohammad As-Shams Jaglul Hossain of Bangladesh Cyber Tribunal adjourned the hearing till November 12 as the defence failed to conclude the quizzing yesterday. A total of 12 witnesses have so far, testified in the case. Supreme Court lawyer Barrister Syed Sayedul Haque Suman lodged the case on April 15 under section 26, 29 and 31 of DSA against Moazzem for illegally recording Nusrat Jahan Rafi’s statement on video and spreading it online. Earlier on July 17, the tribunal framed charges in the case as Moazzem pleaded not guilty. The tribunal on June 17 sent Moazzem Hossain to jail after scrapping his plea for bail in the case. Moazzem was arrested from capital’s Shabagh area on June 16. The tribunal on May 27 issued arrest warrant against the disgraced cop a day after Police Bureau of Investigation (PBI) submitted its probe report over the incident.
According to the allegations, the former Sonagazi OC summoned Nusrat as she filed a case against Sonagazi Islamia Senior Fazil Madrasa principal Siraj Uddoula for sexual harassment. The police official in his room started quizzing her about the incident and was recording the whole incident in absence of any lawyer or female cop. He was seen scolding her and asking Nusrat indecent questions. Moazzem later posted the video on different social media sites.
