Ghoraghat OC withdrawn over attack on UNO Wahida Khanam

Ghoraghat Police Station OC Amirul Islam has been withdrawn for his alleged negligence in duties, nine days after the attack on UNO Wahida Khanam and her father freedom fighter Omar Ali Sheikh at Ghoraghat in Dinajpur.

Dinajpur district police SP Anwar Hossain confirmed the withdrawal of Amirul Islam at 12 noon on Friday.

Amirul Islam has been taken to Rangpur DIG Range and a new OC named Nazimuddin has joined Ghoraghat police station.

On September 3, miscreants attacked the official residence of UNO Wahida Khanam. They first tied up the doorman and broke in through the ventilators at the back of the house. 

The attackers hacked Wahida indiscriminately, leaving her with critical head injuries, and later went on to attack her father Ali Sheikh, 70, as well as he rushed in to save her. 

UNO's brother Sheikh Farid filed a case with Ghoraghat police station on Thursday night over the incident. The case is currently being investigated by Dinajpur DB police.
