The case should be further investigated, he said

The maternal uncle of Rajib, a student of Titumir College, who died in a road accident, filed a no-confidence (naraji) petition against the charge-sheet submitted by Idris Ali, sub-inspector (SI) of Shabagh Police Station and investigation officer (IO) of the case filed over the death.

Metropolitan Magistrate Md Sarafuzzaman Ansari reserved his decision after a hearing on the no-confidence petition filed by Rajib’s uncle Md Jahedul Islam on Wednesday. After recording the statement of the petitioner, the court said it will issue an order on the petition later.

The no-confidence petition said-- the investigation officer did not properly conduct the case investigation. The petitioner further alleged that the IO did not even examine the victim's uncle Jakir Hossain, who submitted the First Information Report (FIR) to Shahbagh Police Station with respect to the death.

On December 15 last year the investigation officer submitted a charge-sheet before the court without informing the victim's family members and others involved with the incident.

The case should be further investigated, the petitioner prayed.

Idris Ali filed a charge-sheet against BRTC bus driver Md. Wahid and Swajan Paribahan bus driver Md. Khorshed, with the Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Court in Dhaka on December 22, last year.

Rajib Hossain, a 22 year-old student of Government Titumir College lost his right arm when a bus of Swajan Paribahan knocked him into a stationary BRTC double-decker bus at the SAARC intersection on April 3.

He was rushed to Somorita Hospital on Panthapath Road and was later transferred to Dhaka Medical College Hospital (DMCH) on April 4 for better treatment. Doctors could not reattach his severed arm.

Rajib died at DMCH on April 17 after remaining in a state of coma for nearly two weeks.

The High Court ordered the BRTC and Swajan Paribahan to pay the bills for Rajib’s treatment and asked why they should not pay Tk1 crore as compensation.
