Satkhira man disappearance in 2016: HC orders action against 3 cops

The High Court today directed the Inspector General of Police to take necessary actions against three the then police officers of Satkhira Sadar Police Station for their negligence in recording General Diary (GD) in connection with the incident of disappearance of Mokhlesur Rahman Jony in August, 2016.

While hearing a rule, the court said that Mokhlesur’s wife Jesmin Nahar can file a case with a court in connection with the incident of his disappearance and also ordered police to record the GD.

The trio is the then Sadar Police Station officer-in-charge Emdadul Haque Sheikh, sub-inspector Himel and Emdaddul's successor Firoz Hossain Mollah.

The High Court bench of Justice Kazi Rezaul Hoque and Justice Mohammad Ullah came up with the order after hearing on the rule and examining the probe report submitted by the PBI.

The bench also fixed February 25 for passing further order on this issue.

The three officials did not carry out their duties vested on them, according to the report of Police Bureau of Investigation (PBI).

Mokhlesur Rahman Jony, a homeopathy doctor of New Market area in Satkhira, went missing on August 4, 2016.

In March last year, his wife Jasmin Nahar filed a writ petition with the HC, claiming that her husband went missing from police custody.
