Barnali Ghose Gangrape And Murder In Khulna

HR leader alleges lax probe by police

Khulna district unit of Bangladesh Human Rights Implementation Committee (BHRIC) has accused Bagerhat Police Superintendent Shahidur Rahman of trying to skip his responsibility in monitoring college girl Barnali Ghose murder case, recorded with Rampal police station on last July 11.

Barnali Ghose (19), daughter of fish trader Bipal Ghose of Chitre village in Rampal and a first year honours student at Khulna Government Azam Khan Commerce College, was gangraped and killed on the night of June 30.

Khulna BHRIC general secretary advocate Abdul Malek in a press statement alleged that neither the police superintendent nor the OC of Rampal police station so far took any meaningful step to identify and arrest the killers.

The police super did not visit the spot till Friday and take any interest to monitor investigation into the incident that has created sensation among people.

The BHRIC leader further alleged that SI Yasin Munshi who is investigating the case did not yet collect any evidence of the gangrape and murder of the girl who got GPA-5 in both SSC and HSC examinations.

The body of Barnali was recovered by police in the early morning of July 11 from a bush near the house of farmer Jalil Munshi of Chitra village.

Bipul Ghose lodged an FIR with Rampal thana as complainant naming college student Raju and Munmun as accused.

Police arrested Liton, Moktar and Kamal as suspects though the two FIR-named accused are yet to be nabbed, said Abdul Malek.

Moktar made a statement before Bagerhat court on August 6 under Section 164 confessing to his involvement in the incident. Moktar also said six others including prime accused Raju were involved in the gangrape and murder, Malek said.

Police Superintendent Shahidur Rahman, when contacted, said that he was aware of the process in investigation. The investigation is being done in a affair way, he said.
