That video should not spread

The court has directed the police to take measures to prevent the spread of a video of a student of Chittagong University being sexually assaulted on the campus.

Today Wednesday (September 14) Chittagong District and Sessions Judge Aziz Ahmad Bhuna gave this order to the Investigation Officer (IO) of the case. One of the accused in this case Noor Hossain Shaon applied for bail, but the judge denied it.

Incidentally, on the night of July 17, a girl student and her friend were caught and sexually assaulted in the botanical garden area on their way back from the Chittagong University campus. It is alleged that the student was also tried to rape.

Later, when the student complained to the university, an inquiry committee was formed. On July 20, the student filed a case at Hathajari police station.

RAB arrested four people from different places of the city on July 22 and one person from Bahaddarhat area on July 23 amid student protests in this incident.

The complaining student identified the accused Noor Hossain Shawon who was on trial in the court.

Prosecutor District PP Sheikh Iftekhar Saimul Chowdhury told the court, “There is more than what the victim has said. The accused sexually assaulted her. Even recorded video. Now we are afraid, if the video is somehow spread, the social and family life of the student may be affected.”

Then the judge said to SI Mizanur Rahman of Hathajari police station, investigating officer of the case, “You should take steps to prevent the video from spreading.” Seek help from CID or any other agency if necessary.”

Meanwhile, District PP Iftekhar Saimul drew the attention of the court that as the video footage was recorded, a crime was committed under the Prevention of Women and Child Abuse Act as well as the Cyber ​​Security Act.

After the hearing, Iftekhar Saimul said, “The court has instructed the plaintiff to apply to the concerned lower court for the inclusion of the cyber crime clause in the case.”

What action has been taken by the university authorities regarding those involved in the incident – When asked by the court, they said that two students have been expelled from the university. 5 accused along with 3 others have been banned from the campus.

The court expressed satisfaction with the steps taken by the university administration.

The persons arrested in this incident are Mohammad Azim (23), Nurul Abshar Babu (22), Nur Hossain Shawon (22), Masud Rana (22) and Saiful Islam (24).

After the hearing, Shaon’s lawyer Asim Karmakar told reporters, “We want a fair investigation into this incident.” Let the real culprits be tried. No innocent should be punished. Taimur was named in the statement as being present at the time of the incident. We want to know in the hearing whether he was interrogated or not. Is he a student of Chittagong University or not?
