None involved in Raihan killing will be spared: SMP Commissioner



Newly-appointed Sylhet Metropolitan Police (SMP) Commissioner Nisharul Arif has said that everyone involved in the killing of Raihan Ahmed would be brought to justice.

“The incident is unwanted and some police officials were involved in it. I am ashamed of it. Those who committed the crime are criminals. They will be brought to book no matter which profession they belong to,” he said while visiting the house of Raihan last night.

Replying to a question about the role of police administration, the SMP commissioner said: “I’ve joined today and I’ll verify it. Besides, there are some instructions from the higher authorities concerned and I believe in the plan, placement, and control policy. I believe it’ll be possible to bring everything under control.”

Referring to suspended SI Akbar, the commissioner said: “All units of the law enforcement agencies are working to arrest him.”

He also urged people to assist police in arresting Akbar.

On October 11, Raihan, 34, a resident of Akharia in Sylhet city, was beaten to death in police custody, said the victim’s family.

His wife Tahmina Akter Tanni filed a case at Kotwali Police Station the following day accusing a number of unidentified people.
