Sujon killing: Court puts on hold family’s case
Madaripur: A court in Madaripur on Monday put on hold a case against eight people, including four policemen, in connection with the killing of Dhaka University (DU) student Sujon Mridha in ‘cop firing’ during the 2nd phase UC election.
Police super Mohammad Sarwar Hossain said the court did not take the case as another case was earlier filed in connection with the incident.
He said district Detective Branch of police assistant sub-inspector Enamul Haque Mondal filed a case against 250 unnamed people with Sadar Police Station on Sunday night in connection with the incident.
The SP said the court will decide about the case after receiving report in the case filed by the police.
Victim’s father Bachchu Mridha went to file the case with the Chief Judicial Magistrate Court on Monday accusing district Detective Branch of police assistant sub-inspector Enamul Haque Mondal as the prime accused.
The other accused include DB constables Masud Rana, Harun-or-Rashid and Md Ashik, and Yakub Ali Fakir, Ayub Ali Fakir, Moni Matubbar and Rasel Munshi.
In his complaint, Bachchu said election officials declared Yakub Fakir elected member in exchange for money although Sujon’s grandfather Motaleb Mridha was much ahead after counting vote at Dakkhin Birongal Nurani Madrasah centre of Dhurail Union Parishad in Sadar upazila.
As Yakub and locals, including Sujon, protested it, ASI Enamul ordered firing and constable Masud Rana opened fire on the protesters that left Sujon dead.
As the police station concerned did not record his case, Bachchu Mridha said, he moved the court to get justice.
