Additional Superintendent of Police of Barguna Muharram Ali was transferred to Chattogram on Wednesday after law enforcers, allegedly led by the high-ranking official, baton-charged the activists of Bangladesh Chhatra League (BCL) in the district town on August 15.
Earlier on Tuesday, ASP Muharram was attached to the office of the deputy inspector general (DIG) in Barishal after his withdrawal from Barguna.
They are – sub-inspectors Md Sagar and Ismail Hossain, constables Rafiul Islam, KM Sani, and Ruhul Amin.
SM Aktaruzzaman, DIG of police’s Barishal range, said they have formed a committee to look into the incident. ASP Muharram was transferred to ensure a fair investigation.
A faction of BCL carried out an attack on their rivals during a rally organised by the student body’s Barguna district unit to mark National Mourning Day on August 15.
They engaged in a clash on the district’s Shilpakala Academy premises. At one stage, a police vehicle got damaged prompting the members of the law enforcement agencies to use truncheons to break them up.
