Home Minister Asaduzzaman Khan Kamal has termed the incident of a woman spending intimate time with Hallmark General Manager (GM) Tushar Ahmed at Gazipur’s Kashimpur Jail as heinous. The minister also said that action would be taken against the jail guards involved in the incident.

The minister was responding to a question from reporters on Saturday afternoon.

The Home Minister said, ‘This is a heinous act. These are forbidden in prisons. Those responsible for this have been initially asked to withdraw. The ministry has also been asked to form an inquiry committee. Further action will be taken in the light of the report given by the committee.

The minister said, “This is a warning to all prisons. Anyone involved will be punished. Because it is the worst crime.

Incidentally, on January 8, Hallmark’s managing director Tanvir’s brother-in-law spent an intimate time with a woman inside Gazipur Kashimpur Central Jail-2. Several officials of the jail, including senior jail superintendent Ratna Roy, assisted in this. When an argument broke out in the jail, an investigation committee was formed from the jail department. At the same time, an order was issued on January 16 withdrawing Mohammad Saqlain, deputy district deputy, Sergeant Abdul Bari and Khalilur Rahman, assistant chief jailor, and attached them to the jail headquarters.

On January 21, a three-member committee headed by Additional Inspector General of Prisons Colonel Abrar visited Kashimpur to investigate.

According to jail sources, the scenes before and after the intimate time were captured on the jail’s CCTV cameras. The investigation committee is recovering and analyzing the footage.

Meanwhile, an inquiry committee formed by the home ministry is also reportedly working. This report is expected to be submitted shortly.
