ABRAR DEATH

Arrest order for Prothom Alo editor, 9 others

UNB, Dhaka

A Dhaka court yesterday issued a warrant for arrest of Bangla daily Prothom Alo editor Matiur Rahman, deputy editor Anisul Hoque and eight others in a case filed over the death of Dhaka Residential Model College student Nayeemul Abrar Rahat from electrocution.

The additional chief metropolitan magistrate of Dhaka, Kaisarul Islam, passed the order after hearing a report submitted by investigation officer Abdul Alim, also officer-in-charge of Mohammadpur Police Station. The IO submitted the report under section 304(A) of the Penal Code. Ninth grader Nayeemul Abrar died after being electrocuted behind the stage at an event organised by Kishor Alo, a publication of Prothom Alo, at Dhaka Residential Model College on November 1 last year.

Five days after the death, victim's father Mujibur Rahman filed the case with the additional chief metropolitan magistrate's court of Dhaka.

In the case, Mujibur alleged that the organisers had negligence in ensuring safety regarding electronic wares at the venue, which cost the life of his son.

He also alleged that Abrar was taken to Universal Medical College Hospital at Mohakhali although Shaheed Suhrawardy Hospital was close to programme venue. The victim’s father also accused Kishore Alo and school authorities of concealing information of Abrar’s death and continuing the event despite the tragic incident.
