“After arrest, Anik Sarkar was sent to Dhaka Central Jail and kept in prison cell following proper procedures,” IG (Prisons) brigadier general AKM Mustafa Kamal Pasha said in a statement today, reports BSS.

He said Anik was not physically assaulted inside the jail by inmates or jail police. That is why the media reports earlier published saying Anik was beaten in jail were false, the statement said.
