Court has denied bail to former officer-in-charge of Sonagazi Police Station Moazzem Hossain and sent him to jail on charges of illegally recording a sex assault victim.
Dhaka Cyber Tribunal Judge Ash Sams Joglul Hossain passed the order after Sonagazi police produced Moazzem before his court in the case filed under Digital Security Act.
The court also fixed June 30 for indictment hearing in this case.
Moazzem Hossain was arrested yesterday, 20 days after a warrant was floated in a case filed under Digital Security Act for recording a sex assault victim.
The victim was Nusrat Jahan Rafi, a madrasa girl from Feni’s Sonagazi who was burned to death for refusing to withdraw a sex assault complaint against Sonagazi Islamia Senior Fazil Madrasa’s then principal Siraj Ud Doula.
Moazzem, who has been found negligent, recorded Nusrat without her consent. The video clip subsequently found its way on to the social media.
The police officer was eventually suspended and sued in Dhaka.
