Man commits suicide under police custody in Sylhet
A man reportedly committed suicide while under custody at Sylhet’s Jaintapur police station on Friday, reports Bangla Tribune. The deceased, Nazrul Islam Babu, was arrested on Thursday in a case filed for torturing his wife, the report said. Nazrul's wife and primary school teacher Nasrin Fatema lodged the case with the Jaintapur police a few days ago, it said. According to police sources, although the entire station was under CCTV surveillance, they could not monitor what happened as acting Officer-in-Charge Shafiul Kabir went out of the station, locking his room where the monitor was located. Several police officials of the station, seeking anonymity, said the incident could have been avoided if the duty officer had access to the monitor. OC Shafiul Kabir told reporters that eight CCTV cameras had been installed to monitor the entire police station. “However the suicide could not be observed as the door to my room was locked,” he said. “The whole incident was still recorded by the CCTV camera and we have that footage,” he added. Duty officers have access to CCTV monitors in all other police stations in Sylhet, except Jaintapur, a police official said. When asked why the monitor was placed in the OC’s room, an official replied that the stone-laden trucks from Jaflong use the road in front of the station. The OC placed the monitor in his room to observe the movement of the trucks. Officer-in-Charge (Investigation) Anwar Jahed said Nazrul had hanged himself from the ceiling using a torn piece of blanket. “The dead body will be handed over to his family after autopsy,” OC Anwar said.
