Terming ‘rape, and murder’ as ‘accident’

HC orders action against Patuakhali civil surgeon, if found guilty

Staff Reporter, Dhaka

The High Court (HC) yesterday directed the director general of the Directorate of Health Services to take departmental action against the Patuakhali civil surgeon, if he is found guilty, after conducting a probe into a “misleading postmortem report” prepared in connection with a rape and murder case.

The HC bench of Justice M Enayetur Rahim and Justice Md Mostafizur Rahman passed the order after rejecting an unconditional apology prayer made by Patuakhali civil surgeon Shah Mojahedul Islam.

Mojahedul Islam yesterday appeared before the HC in keeping with its May 7 order and offered unconditional apology for preparing the postmortem report that termed the rape and murder of Seema, a student of Class VII, as “Anti Mortem and Accidental” (death and accident).

But the HC refused to accept the apology of the civil surgeon and asked the DG of health to conduct an enquiry into the issue. It directed the DG of health take departmental action against the civil surgeon if he is found guilty in preparing the postmortem report.

After rejecting the civil surgeon's prayer, the HC bench said an incident cannot be “death and accident” at the same time. The postmortem report was confusing as "rape and murder" cannot be an accident. "The victim cannot get justice with this report," it added.

The HC bench also rejected a bail petition filed by Dahesh Choukidar, an accused in the case.

Seema was raped and killed on January 21 last year in Patuakhali. Later, her mother, Taslima Negum, filed the case with Women and Children Repression Prevention Tribunal against eight persons. Assistant attorney general Yusuf Mahmud Morshed was present during the hearing on the matter.
