PBI quizzes former OC Moazzem, seizes cell phones

The Police Bureau of Investigation (PBI) yesterday interrogated former officer-in-charge (OC) Moazzem Hossain under the Digital Security Act in connection with the Nusrat murder case. The OC was interrogated for two hours, but he denied his involvement in the incident.

The PBI seized Moazzem's two mobile phones as evidence and these will be sent for forensic test. The PBI investigation officer, Shah Alam, confirmed the matter to The Independent. “We will also interrogate others who are supposed to be involved in the murder,” he said.

On April 15, Moazzem was sued for circulating a video of murdered Feni madrasa student, Nusrat Jahan Rafi, in which he is seen recording her statement. Dhaka Cyber Tribunal judge Ashsams Joglul Hossain passed the order and instructed the chief of the PBI to investigate the case and submit a report by April 30.

Earlier in the day, Supreme Court (SC) lawyer barrister Saidul Huq Sumon lodged a case against Moazzem in the cyber tribunal. According to the case statement, Moazzem recorded a video of the victim’s statement without her consent, while asking her offensive and insulting questions.

The video then spread on various social media platforms, including Facebook and YouTube. It has been alleged that Moazzem had himself circulated the video on the social media.

PBI DIG Banaj Kumar said: “We will continue the investigation with the highest priority.”

However, the Police Headquarters said a committee has been formed. If it detects any anomalies in respect of Moazzem regarding Nusrat’s death, departmental action would be taken. On April 6, some unidentified persons in burqa poured kerosene and set on fire Alim examinee Nusrat Jahan Rafi, after she went to Sonagazi Islamia Fazil Madrasa to appear for her exam. Severely burnt, she was admitted to Dhaka Medical College Hospital (DMCH), where she died on April 10.

On April 10, Moazzem was withdrawn and the case handed over to the PBI.

Earlier, the family of the victim had complained against the OC, saying the police did not do their job and tried to turn the case in a different direction. A Criminal Investigation Department (CID) team visited Songazi in Feni to probe whether there was any illegal transaction of money in the murder case. Deputy inspecter general of the CID, Ruhul Amin, led the five-member team.
