Chittagong district Jamaat leader died in police custody; Jamaat Ameer demands judicial investigation

Bangladesh Jamaat-e-Islami’s Ameer Maqbul Ahmad has issued the following statement on 1st June, 2017 protesting and condemning the custodial death of Chittagong district’s Satkania Upazila’s Dhemsha Union Jamaat President Ahmad Safa.

“Police has arrested Ahmad Safa on 31st May and then carried out inhuman and brutal torture upon him in the name of police remand. He became severely sick due to police’s brutal torture. But police took no measures to provide him due medical treatment. Resultantly, he died in police custody. I am urging the concerned authorities to conduct judicial investigation into the incident of custodial death of Ahmad Safa and to ensure exemplary punishment of the responsible personnel.
