Sylhet Representative :
The value of the case FIR in Jaintapur, Sylhet Twenty thousand rupees. Such a nasty incident happened at Jaintapur Model Police Station.
It is learned that a clash took place between the two sides over cutting bamboo at Chhatar Khai village in Jaintapur upazila of Sylhet. At least 8 people from both sides were injured. The incident took place in the same village around 7 am last month (May 28). Then the police manipulation started. On the day and date of the incident, both the parties lodged two separate complaints with the Jaintapur Model Police Station. But for mysterious reasons, the police immediately treated the case as an FIR, but the other party’s allegation was put on the table. Again for only twenty thousand rupees. This has caused a commotion.
It is learned that the family members of Alfatun Nessar, daughter of the late Hajir Ali, had been having a long-running dispute with Shahad Ahmed, son of Hossain Ahmed of the village, over land issues. On the morning of the incident, Alfatun Nesha’s brother Shukkur, who was above his house, went to cut bamboo. At that time Sahad’s uncle came to him with 8/10 people and forbade him to cut bamboo. At one stage, when there was a quarrel between them, a clash ensued. At least 6 people from both sides were injured. The injured were later rescued by locals and admitted to various clinics and hospitals. After that the bargaining of the police started by filing a case. The police recorded Sahad’s complaint as an FIR that night without any proper investigation after the police trade at a cost of about half a lakh rupees. Three more people, including an innocent 60-year-old man, were accused in the case. Meanwhile, the helpless and impoverished Alfatun Nesha did not pay twenty thousand rupees in cash and the police started wasting time without considering his complaint as an FIR. In the end, the investigating officer of Alfatun Nesha case handed over seventeen thousand rupees to SI Pabitra. But the police did not agree to file a case due to three thousand rupees. The case was recorded by the police after the intervention of a circle officer (June 4). Fearing that officer, the SI returned the 17,000 rupees he had seized through Holy Lokmar. However, the police could not arrest any accused till the writing of this report.
Jaintapur Model Police Station Officer-in-Charge Golam Dastagir Ahmed was contacted on his mobile phone but no statement was received as his mobile phone was not received. However, Omar Farooq, the second officer of the police station, avoided the matter. Meanwhile, the investigating officer of the case admitted the truth of the holy incident but said that he did not take any gift.
The circle officer, who did not want to be named, said on his mobile phone that the matter was being taken seriously. An investigation is underway. He said no criminal should be excluded from the investigation, be it the police or any influential person.
