OC refused to accept constable Halima’s rape complaint, father claims
Police constable Halima Khatun, who committed suicide by setting fire to herself, had left a suicide note accusing the Gouripur police station officer-in-charge of not accepting the rape charge she brought against a sub-inspector. Halima’s father Helal Uddin Akanda presented the suicide note before journalists at a press conference at Mymensingh Press Club on Monday afternoon. The suicide note reads: “Gouripur police station Sub-Inspector Mohammad Mizanul Islam raped me at 2am on March 17. The officer-in-charge refused to accept my complaint.” Before committing suicide, Halima had submitted a written complaint to OC Delower Ahmed mentioning that SI Mizanul raped her on March 17 and SI Ripon knew about the incident. SI Ripon had asked Halima not to complain to the OC about the rape, Halima wrote in the complaint. In the press conference, Halima’s father said they found a diary in the belongings of his daughter. He said that they found the suicide note and the complaint’s copy from the diary. “My daughter would not commit suicide if action had been taken accepting her complaint,” Helal said. Labeling the allegation as baseless, Sub-Inspector Ripon said he did not know anything about the rape. Gouripur police station OC Delower Ahmed said: “Halima did not come to me with any complaint. This is totally fabricated.” Additional Police Super Seema Rani Sarkar said she would not comment before scruitinising the authenticity of the allegation and the suicide note. Halima poured kerosene on her body at an abandoned barrack of the police station and set fire to herself on April 2. She was admitted to Mymensingh Medical College Hospital first. She died while being taken to Dhaka Medical College Hospital. Police arrested SI Mizanul after Halima’s father had filed a case against him on April 4.
