Police have submitted charge sheet against Bangladesh Chhatra Adhikar Parishad’s joint convener Nazmul Hasan Sohag and former convener Hasan Al Mamun in connection with a case filed over rape and offences under the Digital Security Act.
However, police have recommended discharge of four people, including former vice-president (VP) of Dhaka University Central Students’ Union (Ducsu) Nurul Haque Nur, in the case.
The three others are Bangladesh Chhatra Adhikar Parishad’s joint convener Mohammad Saiful Islam, vice-president Mohammad Nazmul Huda, and DU student Abdullah Hill Baki.
Kotwali police Inspector and case investigation officer Md Wahiduzzaman confirmed BSS on Monday, saying: “I have submitted the charge sheet against Sohag for rape and Mamun under the Digital Security Act in the Dhaka Chief Metropolitan Magistrate’s Court on June 8.”
