Three-person committee, formed Wednesday the BMP commissioner, is headed by Assistant Deputy Commissioner Runa Laila. On Tuesday, eight DB officers, including Sub-Inspector (SI) Abul Bashar, two assistant SIs and five constables were closed after it was confirmed that they had tortured Sumon. The incident reportedly occurred when Sumon rushed to collect footage at the site of an anti-drug drive by the DB at Beauty Cinema Road of Barisal city. When Sumon sought some information from the DB members on the scene and provided them with details of his identity, they assaulted him and took him to the DB office at Battala before torturing him further. Later, Sumon was admitted to Sher-e Bangla Medical College Hospital for treatment.
