Police have submitted charge sheet against Bangladesh Chhatra Adhikar Parishad’s joint convener Nazmul Hasan Sohag, and its former convener Hasan Al Mamun in a case filed over rape and offences under Digital Security Act.
However, police have applied for discharge of four persons, including former vice-president (VP) of Dhaka University Central Students’ Union (DUCSU) Nurul Haque Nur, in the case.
The three others who were recommended acquittal from the case are Bangladesh Chhatra Adhikar Parishad’s another joint convener Mohammad Saiful Islam, its vice-president Mohammad Nazmul Huda, and DU student Abdullah Hill Baki.
Kotwali police inspector (unarmed) and investigating officer Mohammad Wahiduzzaman confirmed BSS today, saying, “I have submitted the charge sheet against Sohag for rape and Mamun under the Digital Security Act in the Dhaka Chief Metropolitan Magistrate’s Court on June 8.”
As the allegations against four others including VP Nur are not proved, he has appealed to discharge them from the responsibility of the case, he added.
