Woman cop appeals to court to file rape case against SP

A woman police inspector has filed a petition to the Dhaka Women and Children Repression Prevention Tribunal to register a case accusing superintendent of police (SP) Mokter Hossain of raping her.

Judge Mst Kamrunnahar of the Dhaka women and children repression prevention tribunal-7 recorded the plaintiff’s statement but hasn’t given any order on taking up the case as yet.

Afroza Ahmed, public prosecutor of the tribunal, confirmed the news. She told Prohom Alo the court recorded the statement of the woman police but didn’t issue any order as yet.

According to the petition, the woman police inspector was deployed in a peacekeeping mission Sudan two years ago. SP Mokter Hossain was deployed there. The SP raped her on 20 December 2019. Later Mokter Hossain also raped several times again in Sudan and Bangladesh promising her marriage.
