2 Barishal cops withdrawn for releasing detained fishermen for bribe

Two policemen of Mehendiganj Police Station under Barishal were withdrawn on Saturday night for releasing 10 detained fishermen after taking bribe.

Abidur Rahman, officer-in-charge of Mehendiganj Police Station, said assistant sub-inspector Delwar Hossain and constable Sumon Sikdar were attached to the District Police Lines.

On Friday, a police team, led by Delwar, conducted a drive in the Lalkharabad River in Mehendiganj upazila and arrested 10 fishermen for fishing defying a government ban.

However, two local traders got them released in exchange for money.
