Opinion of Inquiry Officer : I.O. of the case, Sub-Inspector Faruk Ahmed Minhaj told that inquiry is ongoing and trying to arrest other accused. Prima facie evidence of crime has been found. Medical exam of the victims done and deposition taken by learned Magistrate. Charge sheet will be submitted after inquiry is complete.

Opinion of Facts finder Team:

The fact finder team (human rights force) physically visiting the spot tried to bring the truth to light. Prima evidences of crime is found and the accused committed offence under section 5 (3)/30 of Anti- Women and Children Oppression Act-2000 (amended 2003). Accused should be given exemplary punishment. The Human Rights Force inquiry team thanked RAB- 7 Commandant Major Sayed Ashfaq Sami for taking legal consultancy of BHRF. In that case, we would like to mention, though police arrest accused from hotels and houses for such illicit sex trade and recovers victim, police submit prosecution making the victims as accused under Metropolitan Act, which is ultra vire to law. The Inquiry team urges that instead of such prosecution, steps of lodging lawsuit should be taken against hotel owner, manager, staff and landowner. With legal aid of BHRF, victim Moni was back to her mother from safe custody.

Recommendations:
  • Exemplary punishment should be awarded to the accused in order to curb such crime.
  • To submit charge sheet at the learned court after arresting other accused.
  • Instead of accusing the victims, to file case under sections concerned.
  • To follow up the case and to provide legal aid to the complainant.


Case (13): News published at the daily Azadi titled: “Photo taken by reader and Court orders for inquiry report within 24 hours”


Introduction: As the news titled “Photo taken by a reader” was published in the daily Azadi on 9/8/11 and another news titled “Court orders for submitting inquiry report within 24 hours” was published in the same newspaper on 10/8/11, BHRFChittagong Branch President Advocate Zia Habib Ahsan took the matter in his attention. Taking the matter into account, he decided to go into the depth through fact findings and with this view, formed a 3-member team under supervision of BHRF-Chittagong Branch General Secretary Advocate Mohammed Sharif Uddin; other two members were Tapas Kumar Roy and Hasina Akter. Facts finding team openly and secretly carried out primary investigation which is presented briefly as follow. Further investigation is ongoing, which will be disclosed later.

Objective of facts finding:
  • To justify the facts of news published and to bring the truth to light.
  • To publicize the facts obtained by inquiry through electronic and print media to raise awareness of administration and general public.
  • To recover the victim and stop such occurrence.
  • To free the court premises from touts.
Summary of the reports published:

A photograph caught by Ismail Mitu published in the first page of daily Azadi on 9/8/11 captioned “What’s going on?” stirred up sensation in the courts premise and police quarter. Feeling gravity of the occurrence, Metropolitan Magistrate Mohammed Mahbubur Rahman at his own conscience issued rule and ordered AC (DB) to submit report inquiring the matter within 24 hours and also directed to forward copy of order to CMP Commissioner, Deputy Commissioner, DC (North), AC Kotwali and Editor of the daily Azadi. The learned Magistrate in his ruling said that caption of the photograph published is very touching, no scope to ignore. The whole matter contains much elements of cognizable offence. So, it should be investigated for the sake of justice. The court, by dint of power entrusted upon under sections 190(1)(GA) of Criminal Code of Procedure 1898, deem it proper to order for investigation for bringing the truth to light and to cognizance of offence against the perpetrators. It is learnt from inquiry that 16 years old adolescent Sharmin having mental perturbation with her family left her house and came to Chittagong town. Having arrived at Chittagong from Kutubdia on 20 March 2011, she took shelter in a family residing Baizaid P.S. area. She hoped and was rest assured that she would at least get a job at garment factory to live on; but she was raped having abducted for 2 days. Of course, the police recovered her, but did not file any case against the rapists. But she told everything about gang rape to the police. Who cares about her torture? On 22 March, she was despatched to court with other arrestee under charge of prostitution. The victim was made criminal. The broker group of prostitution set her free paying fine. Practical inquiry shows that a lawyer was cooperating that broker group. Within sight of that lawyer and police, taking out from court lock up, the brokers tied by her hands and legs. Then they pulled her hair and took about 100 yards far. Then her cry filled the air and she was forcefully taken to CNG autorikshaw. Since then, she (kidnapped) is untraced. As the picture of that cruelty was published in daily Azadi of 9/8/11, sensation arose everywhere. It is learnt, the Court of Metropolitan Magistrate Mohammed Jasimuddin on 22/3/2011 fined that girls and others 100 taka penalty, and 2 days prison in default of payment. Some advocate submitted vokalatnama in that case. On the day of occurrence, that lawyer threatened and refrained some young man who came to save the victim. The incident was published in newspaper and its video footage is also preserved. How this could happen openly at Chittagong Court premise! We tried to draw the attention of AC Prosecution but was not reached. BHRF leader Advocate Zia Habib termed the incident unprecedented and urged punishment of the committers.

Case no., date and section:

Baizid police arrested Sharmin and 3 others vide GD no.1039 dated 21/3/11 and despatched to court vide case, not worth considering, no.61/11, dtd.22/3/11, section 76 of CMPO and Non GR case no.774/11.

Date and time:

At about 4-00 p.m. of 22/3/11.

Details of the complainant of the case not worthy of being taken into consideration:

On 21/3/11 at about 18-05 p.m. Baizid P.S. patrol police A.S.I. Shahjahan, Constable/1276 Md. Hanif and Ansar Battalion Md. Shahabuddin arrested Sharmin and other 3 from rented house of Kashem zamidar of Amin Colony under Baozid P.S. on allegation of prostitution and next day, 22/3/11, A.S.I. Abdur Rahim submitted non F.I.R. vide not worth considering case no.61/11, sections CMPO 76.

Details of the arrestee:

1) Nur Mohammed (30), father- Ledu Meah, address- Premasia, P.S.-Banshkhali, dist-Chittagong. Present at Amin colony, Kashem Zamider’s rental house, Baizid P.S., dist-Chittagong. 2) Hamida Begum(21), w/o- Nur Mohammed (where Sharmin lived as paying guest), 3) Senowara Akter(18), father-Late Ahsan Ullah, address:- Premasia, P.S.-Banshkhali, dist-Chittagong. Presently at Amin colony, Kashem Zamider’s rental house, Baizid P.S., dist- Chittagong and 4) Sharmin Akter (18), father- Abdul Malek, address- Chardurum, P.S.-Kutubdia, dist-Chittagong, at present- Amin colony, Kashem Zamider’s rental house, Baizid P.S., dist-Chittagong.

Statement of one direct witness young man whose name anonymous:

Unwilling to disclose his name, direct witness young man told that the police arrested Sharmin and others from a house at Baizid where she was inhumanly violated by gang of the family whom she co-existed as paying guest and police despatched her to court under section 76 of CMPO. Metropolitan Court ordered each of them Tk.100 fine, 2 days jail in default. A broker syndicate of prostitute trade through a lawyer submitted vokalatnama and freed her from court. As the victim Sharmin was coming out of custody, in presence of that lawyer, the broker syndicate pulling by her hair, tied hands and legs. As I saw it, I protested their violence, but the lawyer abused me and drove me away. They took her to an unknown place by CNG taxi. During their jiggling, jostling , wrangling, I caught the scene in my mobile phone video. Now at my conscience, I opened the video footage and still shot at newspaper. Now that lawyer is in Saudi Arabia for Umra hajj, I heard. I urge punishment of the culprits who committed such nuisance at court premise and for necessary steps of rescuing the girl.

Baizid P.S. S.I. Shahjahan:-

The Inquiry team of Human Right Force frequently tried to talk him but he was absent. Even could not reach his mobile phone.

AC (DB) :

The I.O., AC DB Mr. Abdullah Al Mahmud told that they prayed time of one week from court. We are trying to rescue the girl. Police Inspector (DB) Shadip das is working sincerely.

AC Prosecution :

AC Prosecution said to in inquiry team that I am not thoroughly aware of the incident. I learnt about it from report of newspaper. The specific department is looking into the matter. I feel it improper to comment as I am not thoroughly informed.

Opinion of the facts finding team (Human Right Force) :

The team visited the spot physically and carried out thorough investigation to bring the truth to light. Primary investigation shows that on 21/3/11 at about 18-05 p.m. Baizid P.S. patrol police A.S.I. Shahjahan, Constable/1276 Md. Hanif and Ansar Battalion Md. Shahabuddin arrested Sharmin and other 3 from rented house of Kashem zamidar of Amin Colony under Baozid P.S. on allegation of prostitution and next day, 22/3/11, A.S.I. Abdur Rahim submitted non F.I.R. vide not worth considering case no.61/11, sections CMPO 76. But instead of applying section 5(3) of Anti-Women and Children Oppression Act 2000( amended in 2003), police despatched them to court under section 76 of CMPO. So, victim is made culprit. What a perfect stratagem of escaping the real culprits! Women, children and minor girls rescued from different residential hotels are despatched and produced to court in the same way. Hotel owners or manager is not taken as accused. Due to negligence of Baizid P.S. Police, AC Prosecution, cooperation of one advocate with the broker syndicate, such heinous occurrence could take place within court premise, the inquiry team observes. With whom Sharmin lived as paying guest, Nur Mohammed and Hamida Begum fled from the place. Human Rights Forces also thinks that taking video footage from direct witness, hot pursuit of the culprits and arresting them, interrogating them could help rescue the victim girl. Analysis of the event reveals that police, instead of nabbing those sex trade syndicate, arrests and produces the victims as culprits under section 76 of CMPO. The government’s concerned wing should give directives to the police for proper application of sections under Anti- Women and Children oppression Act 2000, urged by Bangladesh Human Rights Foundation.

Recommendations:
  • For getting out the tout from court premise, administration should carry out special operation with cooperation of Bar Association, Advocate Clerk Association, Court Employees Association.
  • Collecting video footage from direct witness, identify the culprit, arrest and interrogate them and rescue the victim girl.
  • Taking proper action against Baizid Police through investigation for applying section 76 CMPO instead of Anti-Women and Children Oppression Act 2000( amended in 2003).
  • Taking legal measure against the cooperating lawyer as an accomplice to syndicate.
  • Rehabilitation of victim.
