On October 11, Rayhan, 34, was beaten to death in police custody

An investigation report into the death of Rayhan Ahmed at Bandar Bazar police outpost will be submitted within two weeks, the High Court was informed Monday.

Deputy Attorney General Nowroz Rasel Chowdhury informed this while the court was hearing a writ petition seeking proper justice and compensation for Rayhan’s family.

Later, the bench of Justice Md Mozibur Rahman Miah and Justice Mohi Uddin Shamim fixed Nov 16 to hear the writ petition filed on Oct 12.

Advocate Syed Fazle Elahi stood for the writ petitioner.

On October 11, Rayhan, 34, a resident of Akharia in Sylhet city, was beaten to death in police custody, his family said.

His wife Tahmina Akter Tanni filed a case at Kotwali Police Station the following day accusing a number of unidentified people.

Four policemen, including the then in-charge of Bandarbazar Police outpost Sub-Inspector Akbar, were suspended on October 12. Three policemen were also withdrawn the same day.

The case has been transferred to the Police Bureau of Investigation.

Besides, the Sylhet Metropolitan Police (SMP) formed a committee to look into the death of Rayhan. After a primary investigation, it found some policemen guilty of foul play.

After the autopsy, doctors said there were 111 injury marks on Rayhan’s body and two of his nails were pulled out.

On October 22, former SMP Commissioner Golam Kibria was transferred over widespread criticism of the role of police in Rayhan’s death.
