Senior Correspondent: Moazzem Hossain, former Officer-in-Charge (OC) of Feni’s Sonagazi Police Station, has been arrested from the capital’s Shahbag area in a case filed under Information and Computer Technology (ICT) act over madrasa student Nusrat Jahan Rafi murder.
On tipped off, he was apprehended near the High Court around 4:00pm.
Deputy Commissioner (DC) Maruf Hossain Sarder said this while briefing media at DC office of Ramna Zone on Sunday afternoon.
He said, “Moazzem Hossain will be handed over to Sonagazi Police Station as arrest warrant issued to the police station. Later, he will be produced before the court.”
Moazzem was in charge of the Sonagazi Police Station when Nusrat pressed charges of sexual harrassment against her madrasa principal Siraj-ud-Daula in March, recording her statement on his mobile phone.
The video was later released on social media amidst widespread protest over a deadly arson attack on Nusrat allegedly by followers of Siraj, who had already landed in jail on the sexual abuse charges, in April.
