A Dhaka cyber tribunal on Monday directed the jail authorities to provide division to Moazzem Hossain, former officer-in-charge (OC) of Sonagazi police station, as per the jail code.

Judge Mohammad As-Shams Jaglul Hossain of Cyber Tribunal (Bangladesh) in Dhaka issued the order after Moazzem’s counsel, Masuma Akter, submitted a petition for providing the police officer with first class division in jail considering his social status.

Earlier on June 20, the defence counsel submitted the petition seeking division for her client.

It was mentioned in the petition that Moazzem was getting job facilities under the ninth grade of the pay scale, so he is a first-class citizen in the country and deserves division in prison as per the jail code.

Moazzem Hossain was arrested on June 17, 20 days after a warrant was issued in a case filed against him under Digital Security Act.

The same day, the court sent Moazzem to jail after rejecting his petition in a case filed for recording Feni madrasa student Nusrat Jahan Rafi’s statement on his phone and circulating the video clip on social media. 

Supreme Court lawyer Barrister Syed Sayedul Haque Suman filed the case on April 15 with the Cyber Tribunal under Section 26, 29 and 31 of the Digital Security Act.

The tribunal on May 27 issued an arrest warrant against the former OC, a day after the Police Bureau of Investigation (PBI) submitted its probe report over the incident.

The court, meanwhile, fixed June 30 for a hearing on charge framing against the disgraced police officer.
