Bangshal Rickshawpuller torture: Sultan lands in jail

A Dhaka court today rejected the bail plea and ordered Sultan Ahmed to sent to jail on charges of torturing a rickshawpuller in Old Dhaka's Bangshal area.

Dhaka Metropolitan Magistrate Debabrata Biswas passed the order after a hearing on Wednesday.

The accused Sultan Ahmed was produced before the Dhaka Metropolitan Magistrate's Court today. Bangshal police sub-inspector Md. Ali Reza Mamun requested to keep the accused in jail till the victim rickshaw puller is found. At that time the accused party applied for bail. The state, on the other hand, opposed bail. After hearing both sides, the court rejected his bail application and ordered him to be sent to jail.

AIG Sohel Rana of Police headquarters (Media and Public Relations) said on Tuesday that the detainee was a landlord and influential in Bangshal area. Appropriate legal action is being taken against him.

Sohel Rana said, “A journalist sent a video link on social media to the Media and Public Relations Wing of the police today. The video shows a man slapping a rickshawpuller in Bangshal. At one stage of the torture, the rickshaw puller fell to the ground and when he lost consciousness, witnesses came forward to rescue him.

As soon as he saw the video, Media and Public Relations Wing Bangshal Police OC Md. Shaheen instructed Fakir to find the perpetrator and bring him to justice. In this context, a team led by the OC found the accused and brought him under the law in a short time.

Bangshal police duty officer SI Mamunur Rashid said Sultan was arrested for beating rickshawpuller. If we find the victim, the rickshawpuller, legal action will be taken on the basis of his complaint.
