Feni SP closed for neglecting duty

Superintendent of Police in Feni SM Jahangir Alam has been closed for negligence in duty over the murder of Feni madrasa student Nusrat Jahan Rafi.

The ministry of home affairs took the decision today, a top police official told The Daily Star.

Sohel Rana, assistant inspector general (media and PR) at the police headquarters, said the Fani SP has been closed and attached to the police headquarters.

Yesterday, two more police officials were suspended and attached to other police units for the similar charge.

The two suspended police officials are Sub-Inspector Abu Yousuf and Sub-Inspector Iqbal Ahmed of Sonagazi Police Station. Their suspension order became effective on Friday, said a top PHQ official.

There are allegations that the local police tried to make the murder look like a suicide and that they did not play their due role in arresting the accused immediately.

Earlier on Wednesday, the former officer-in-charge of Sonagazi Police Station Moazzem Hossain was suspended. He was attached to the office of the deputy inspector general of Rangpur Range.

The officials are facing charges of violating departmental discipline, tarnishing the image of police and behaving inappropriately, said PHQ officials.

On April 30, the committee submitted a report against the SP and three other policemen in Feni after it found that they committed negligence in duty.

The probe committee included Deputy Inspector General SM Ruhul Amin and Additional SP Mohammad Abu Suffiun of the PHQ.
