Maruful Islam, a sub-inspector of Mirpur Police Station, has been suspended temporarily as he allegedly submitted charge sheet against a 10-month-old baby and a deceased person of a theft case lodged in June last year.
The action was taken as per the direction of Inspector General of Police AKM Shahidul Hoque today, says senior information officer of the police headquarters, Kamrul Islam.
Earlier on May 9, a Dhaka court gave the police investigator a week to appear in person to explain how and why a 10-month-old baby and a deceased person were implicated in the charge sheet.
On April 30, when the baby boy along with his parents came to the court to surrender responding to its arrest warrant issued on March 9, came to media attention.
'The 10-month-old boy Rubel was only 28 days when the alleged crime was committed on June 26, 2016 in Mirpur area but the charge sheet mentioned Rubel as 30 years old,' Shamia Akther, the baby’s mother alleged.
The case was filed by one Habibur Rahman who accused Abul Kashem, his two sons Rubel and 20 other, saying they came his land with local weapon to take possession of his land, according to the case statement
