CHATTOGRAM: A case was filed against five policemen, including former Officer-in-Charge Pradeep Kumar Das of Teknaf Police Station, on charges of killing two brothers in crossfire.

Their sister Rinat Sultana Shahin filed the case at the court of Chattogram Chief Metropolitan Magistrate on Wednesday.

The court asked additional superintendent of police of Anwara Circle to investigate the matter.

Other accused of the case are Sub Inspector Iftekharul Islam, Constable Mazharul Islam, Din Islam and Amzad Hossain.

The plaintiff in the case said police in cooperation with Chandanish station picked his brothers Amanul Hoque Harun and Azadul Hoque Azad from their village at Fakirpara in July.

Police then alleged that the duo was involved with drug peddling and demanded Tk 8 lakh for their release.

“As we couldn’t provide the money police killed the duo in crossfire on July 15,” alleged the plaintiff.
