Common people have expressed satisfaction over the prompt action taken by law enforcers against Erfan Selim, the errant son of lawmaker Hazi Selim, for the attack on a navy officer.

They have condemned the attack and demanded proper punishment for the attackers.        

Erfan, also a ward councillor of Dhaka South City Corporation, along with his associates swooped on Lt Wasif Ahmed Khan in Dhanmondi area of the capital on Sunday night and physically assaulted him in front of his wife.

Erfan has already been arrested in a case filed against him on charges of "attacking" Lt Wasif Ahmed Khan.

Later, a mobile court of the RAB sentenced Erfan to one year in prison for the incident.

Director of RAB's Media Wing Lt Col Ashik Billah told journalists that Erfan's bodyguard has also been taken into RAB custody in the case.

Lt Wasif filed the case with Dhanmondi Police Station last night, naming four accused, including Erfan Selim (37) and two to three unnamed persons.

Earlier, Lt Col Ashik Billah said the elite force arrested Erfan Selim not only in connection with the case but also based on some other specific allegations against him.
