OC Moazzem gets 8-yr jail
Published: 02:53 PM, 28 November 2019 Updated: 03:19 PM, 28 November 2019
The court on Thursday has sentenced Moazzem Hossain, former officer-in-charge (OC) of Sonagazi Police Sation, to 8 years in jail in a case under Digital Security Act. The court also fined Tk 15 lakh for allegedly circulating the video clip of Feni’s madrasa student Nusrat Jahan Rafi on social media.
Bangladesh Cyber Tribunal judge Mohammad As-Shams Jugalul Hossain announced the verdict in the afternoon.
Earlier, the Bangladesh Cyber Tribunal Judge fixed the day to pronounce the verdict after presenting the arguments of the state and the opposition on November 20.
The testimony ended on November 12. The tribunal took a total of 12 witnesses’ testimony. Then on November 14, OC Moazzem demanded justice, claiming himself innocent.
On April 5, Barrister Syed Sayedul Haque Suman filed a case against Moazzem Hossain under Digital Security Act.
The case states that the former Sonagazi OC summoned Nusrat as she filed a case against Sonagazi Islamia Senior Fazil Madrasa principal Siraj Ud Doula.
The police officer started quizzing her about the incident and recorded the whole incident in the absence of any lawyer or female police. In the video, it was heard scolding her and asking Nusrat objectionable questions. Later, Moazzem posted the video on different social media sites.
At one stage, OC Moazzem Hossain also made a mockery of that victim. What OC Moazzem Hossain has done is a criminal offense punishable under the Digital Security Act 2018, according to the case details.
A case was filed against OC Moazzem Hossain under sections 26, 29 and 31 of the Digital Security Act. Along with this, the petitioner issued an arrest warrant against the accused.
A complaint was filed against principal Siraj Ud-Daula on charges of sexual assaulting madrasa student Nusrat Jahan Rafi. Nusrat’s mother Shirin Akhter filed a case with Sonagazi Police Station on March 27. Then the police arrested the principal. After the incident, he is in jail.
On April 6, a group of masked youths, reported to be the principal’s stooge, took Nusrat to the rooftop and set her on fire in their bid to kill her.
Five days later, on April 10, Nusrat died in the Burn Unit of Dhaka Medical College Hospital. Nusrat’s brother filed a case against Madarasa principal Siraj Ud-Daula in this incident.
On October 24, Judge Md Mamynir Rashid of Feni’s Women and Children Repression Prevention Tribunal pronounced 16 accused to death and fined Tk one lakh over the most widely discussed Nusrat murder case.
