Plaintiff Abul Kashem has mentioned in his written complaint that 2/3 miscreants including defendant Mansoor of the same village entered the house of Abul Kashem and attacked him in a planned manner on the night of August 4. Later he filed the said case to get redressal and justice. At one point the investigation started. SI Mohibur of Jaintapur Model Police Station was given the responsibility of its investigation. First of all, he investigated and managed to recover a mobile set and 10,000 (Ten Thousand Taka) cash from the plaintiff. After that, he began to negotiate with the plaintiff.
