Judicial probe report on Santals, police clash submitted to High Court
The judicial investigation report on the clash between Santals and Gaibandha police during an eviction drive in Gobindaganj upazila on November 6 has been submitted to the High Court. Deputy Attorney General Motahar Hossain Saju presented the report before the bench of Justice Obaidul Hassan and Justice Krishna Debnath on Tuesday, reports UNB. The court issued an order to provide a copy of the report to six people, including a justice of the bench concerned, by February 5. It also fixed February 7 for further order on the report. On Monday, the judicial probe body, formed to look into the incident, submitted its report saying some locals and law enforcement agency members were involved in torching the houses of the Santals during the eviction drive. In the report, the investigators said video footage showed some policemen and two civilians actively taking part in the arson while several other policemen stood nearby and did nothing. The probe body said witnesses could not identify those involved in the arson. On December 14, the High Court directed Gaibandha's chief judicial magistrate to investigate police involvement in setting fire. Three Santal men were killed and 30 people, including nine policemen, were injured in a clash with law enforcers and workers of Rangpur Sugar Mills in Gobindaganj on November 6. The clash broke out when workers of Rangpur Sugar Mills along with police went to Bagda Farm area to reclaim land of the sugar mill allegedly occupied by the Santal community.
