Police today have filed a chargesheet against five people, including Irfan Selim, son of Dhaka-7 MP Haji Selim, in a case of beating and attempted murder of a naval officer.

The investigation has found evidence that Irfan Selim’s associates had beaten Navy officer Lieutenant Wasif Ahmed Khan.

AKM Hafeez Akhter, Additional Police Commissioner of Detective Branch (DB) of Dhaka Metropolitan Police (DMP), said this in response to a query from reporters at a press conference at Minto Road in the capital on Saturday.

He said Irfan Selim was in the car at the time of the incident. The chargesheet was made after the investigation found his associates involved in the incident. The chargesheet was filed against five people, including Haji Selim’s son Irfan Selim, on February 8.

A navy officer was allegedly assaulted by a group of people, led by Irfan Salim, near Kalabagan crossing under Dhanmondi police station at the evening of October 25 last year after the car owned by lawmaker Hazi Salim hit his (navy officer’s) motorbike.

Lieutenant Wasif Ahmed Khan of Bangladesh Navy filed a case against seven people, including Irfan Salim and his father’s bodyguard and five others, accusing them of assaulting him and his wife with Dhanmondi Police Station on October 26.

Lieutenant Wasif, in his complainant, said the car first hit the motorcycle while he was returning home with his wife after purchasing some books. As he tried to protest the incident some people got down from the car, assaulted him and knocked out his one tooth.
