“Shahinur Rahman has been working as a Rab personel for RAB-6 in Khulna,” Obaidul said.
Azim Uddin, officer-in-charge of the Shajahanpur police station, said, “Shahinur Rahman is a corporal [army person] and [has been] working for the Rab-6. Therefore, we handed him over to the Bogura cantonment yesterday evening [in this regard]. We have not filed any case against him as he is from the army.”
When contacted Lt Col Syed Mohammad Nurus Saleheen Yusuf, commanding officer of Khulna Rab-6, said, “Shahinur is our member [corporal]. He was on casual leave for eight days from last November 25. He did something wrong in Bogura, therefore police held him and handed over to the Bogura cantonment. You will get the rest of the information from the Bogura cantonment.”
