Raihan Ahmed, an inhabitant of Akhalia area in Sylhet city, was picked early in the morning on October 11 last and then taken to Bandarbazar Police Outpost where he was mercilessly tortured in custody. Later, he succumbed to his injuries at Sylhet Osmani Medical College Hospital.

On the following day, Tahmina Aktar Tanni, wife of slain Raihan Ahmed, filed a murder case with Kotwali Police Station.

There are rumours that the prime accused sub-inspector Akbar Hossain Bhuiyan fled the country. However, police believe that he is hiding inside the country.

Though other hospital faced great difficulties to provide Copvid-19 infected patients, Police Hospital has acheived trust providing treatment to those patients.”
