5 more police members suspended over Barisal journo torture
Barisal Metropolitan Police (BMP) has suspended five more members of the Detective Branch (DB) of police who allegedly tortured a private TV channel journalist in the city on March 13. The suspended officers are sub-inspector Abdul Bashar, assistant sub-inspectors Akteruzzaman and Swapan Chandra Dey, and constables Masudul Haq and Abdur Rahim. BMP Assistant Commissioner (DB) Nasir Uddin Mallik said action was taken against the DB men as a result of a probe committee finding their involvement in torturing Sumon Hasan, a cameraperson of DBC News. A total of eight DB personnel have so far been suspended over the incident. Earlier on March 14, eight members of DB police were closed to the district police lines over the torture of the journalist and a probe committee was formed to look into the incident. On March 13, a DB team led by sub-inspector Abul Bashar engaged in an altercation with Sumon Hasan during a police drive at a house near the old 'Beauty Hall' at South Chawkbazar in the city. At one stage, the DB team swooped in on the journalist and beat him mercilessly. They also hit in the testicles which knocked him out. The detectives then took Sumon to the police station and again tortured him inhumanly there. Sumon alleged that the DB team attacked him after he wanted to know about the drive. "They got furious when I introduce myself as a journalist," he said, adding that they also threatened to implicate him in a drug case and kill him in a crossfire.
