Detective Branch (DB) of police has been entrusted with the task of conducting investigation into a treason case, which was earlier lodged as a general diary (GD), filed against a trustee of Ganashasthaya Kendra Dr Zafarullah Chowdhury.

The GD was filed on Thursday against Zafarullah for making false, fabricated, motivated and treasonous remarks against the army chief in a television talk-show on October 9, reports BSS.

“The GD was converted into a treason case on Sunday following approval of the Home Ministry and was transferred to Detective Branch (DB) of police the same day,” Additional Commissioner of Dhaka Metropolitan Police (DMP) Md Abdul Baten told BSS today.

“Assistant superintendent of police (ASP) Fazlur Rahman of DB was appointed today as investigation officer (IO) of the case,” he also said.

Major M Raqibul Alam of the Legal Affairs Wing of the army headquarters filed the GD against Zafarullah Chowdhury with Cantonment Police Station earlier on Thursday, Taposh Kumar Das, Assistant Commissioner (AC) of Cantonment zone told the national news agency.

In the GD it was mentioned, on the night of October 9, a day prior to delivering the verdict in the case of the August, 21, 2004, grenade attack, Zafarullah made sudden and irrelevant remarks about the army chief which were targeted, motivated and plotted to spread stir among the armed forces and tantamount to treason.

Investigation is needed to find out why and by whose instigation, a highly educated citizen like Dr Zafarullah made such motivated, false, untrue and treasonous remarks about the army chief in a talk-show at Samoy TV on October 9, according to GD.

The army headquarters sent a protest letter to the Samoy TV which was later broadcasted by the channel.
