Home Minister Asaduzzaman Khan on Monday said those who are involved in criminal activities will be brought to justice regardless of their identity.

“If anyone commits a crime, he or she will be brought under law, no matter who the person is,” he told reporters at his Dhanmondi residence when they asked for comments on an attack on a navy official.

A case has been filed against Erfan Selim, councillor of ward-30 of Dhaka South City Corporation (DSCC) and son of MP Haji Selim, for allegedly attacking Lieutenant Wasif Ahmed Khan of Bangladesh Navy at Dhanmondi, Dhaka on Sunday night.

Lt Wasif filed the case with Dhanmondi Police Station against four named accused, including Erfan, and several unnamed accused.

The three other named accused are AB Siddique Dipu, 45, Md Zahid, 35, and driver Md Mizanur Rahman, 30.

According to the case statement, a private car hit Lt Wasif's motorcycle near Labaid Hospital around 7:45pm when he and his wife were returning to their Mohammadpur residence from Nilkhet.

Later, some people came out of the car and physically assaulted the navy official. They also verbally abused his wife, the navy official alleged.

The incident went viral on social media.

Md Ikram Ali Mia, officer-in-charge of Dhanmondi police station, said driver of the car Mizanur was detained from the spot and shown arrested in the case.

Later, members of Rapid Action Battalion (Rab) conducted a drive at the Old Dhaka residence of Haji Selim and detained his son Erfan and Irfan’s bodyguard Zahid on Monday afternoon.

A Dhaka court on Monday placed Mizanur Rahman on one-day remand in the case filed over the assault.

Dhaka Metropolitan Magistrate Abu Sufiyan Mohammad Noman passed the order when Dhanmondi Police Station's Inspector Ashfaq Rajib, also the investigation officer of the case, produced Mizanur before the court in the afternoon, seeking a five-day remand.
