Court also rejects no-confidence petition against police report
Bashundhara Group Managing Director Sayem Sobhan Anvir came out clean as a Dhaka court on Wednesday relieved him from the charge of abetting the suicide of college student Mosarat Jahan Munia.
Metropolitan Magistrate Pranab Kumar Hui passed the order after accepting the police’s probe report that cleared the accused from the charges in the case.
The court also rejected the no-confidence petition filed by Munia’s elder sister Nusrat Jahan.
Sub-Inspector Md Alamgir Hossain, general recording officer of the CMM court, confirmed to Dhaka Tribune.
On July 19, Officer-in-Charge of Gulshan police station Abul Hasan, also the IO of this case, filed the final report with the Chief Metropolitan Magistrate's Court.
Sayem is the son of Ahmed Akbar Sobhan, the chairman of Bashundhara Group, one of the largest conglomerates in Bangladesh.
They were in a relationship for two years, police said earlier. Sayem also visited the apartment several times, according to the CCTV footage, and was last seen on April 20.
Nusrat Jahan filed the case under Section 306 of the Penal Code with Gulshan police alleging that the accused had forced the girl to take her life at her apartment in Gulshan on April 27.
Plaintiff’s counsel Masud Salauddin on Tuesday filed the petition against the probe report which said police found no evidence against Anvir of abetting the suicide during the investigation.
He said the plaintiff would challenge the court order.
The plaintiff said she had received no cooperation from the law enforcers in connection with the case.
“The investigating officer did not inform me anything about the probe report,” she told Dhaka Tribune.
