The SP on January 25 appeared before the court and offered an unconditional apology

The High Court (HC) on Wednesday warned former superintendent of police (SP) in Kushtia SM Tanvir Arafat for misbehaving with Senior Judicial Magistrate Mohsin Hasan while on their election duty on January 16.

A High Court division virtual bench of Justice Mamnoon Rahman and Justice Khandaker Diliruzzaman passed the order, discharging a rule it had issued earlier in this regard.

“The court warned SM Tanvir Hasan to be careful in discharging his professional duties in future,” Deputy Attorney General Amir Das Gupta told BSS.

Advocate Munshi Moniruzzaman defended the police official before the court, while Advocate Ishrat Hasan argued against him.

The High Court on January 20 asked the then Kushtia superintendent of police to appear before it at 10:00am on January 25 to explain his conduct. The court also issued a rule on suo moto, asking the SP to explain as to why actions shall not be taken against him for contempt of court.

SM Tanvir Hasan on January 25 appeared before the court and offered an unconditional apology. He also promised that such mistakes will not be repeated in future.
