Nusrat murder

OC Moazzem pleads ‘not guilty’

UNB, Dhaka

Former Sonagazi Police Station officer-in-charge Moazzem Hossain entered a plea of ‘not guilty’ in a case filed under the Digital Security Act over unlawfully interrogating deceased Feni madrasa student NusratJahan Rafi. Moazzem pleaded himself not guilty before the Cyber Tribunal Judge Md As-Shams Jaglul Hossain and sought justice while the court fixed November 20 for placing the arguments.

The tribunal recorded statements of 12 witnesses. The ex-OC was arrested on June 16 from capital’s Shahbagh area and indicted on July 17. The former OC is accused of unlawfully interrogating Feni madrasa student NusratJahan Rafi and recording it on phone. A video of the incident went viral on the social media, prompting lawyer Sumon to file a case against the policeman on April 15 under the Digital Security Act.

Moazzem had summoned Sonagazi Islamia Senior Fazil Madrasa's Principal Sirajuddoula and Nusrat, who accused the teacher of sexually harassing her. The girl’s mother had filed a case with Sonagazi police over her daughter’s harassment.

The former OC interrogated Nusrat in the absence of her lawyer or any other woman and used inappropriate language.

Nusrat was later set on fire on April 6 at an exam centre, reportedly by people loyal to Sirajuddoula. She died on April 10 at the Dhaka Medical College Hospital.

Moazzem was initially withdrawn and later suspended on May 10. A tribunal ordered his arrest on May 27 after investigators found allegations brought against him to be true.
