Chargesheet against Irfan Selim, 4 others submitted to court
A chargesheet was submitted to court against five persons, including Irfan Selim, son of Dhaka-7 MP Haji Selim, in a case of beating and attempt to murder of a Navy officer.
The investigation has found evidence that Irfan Selim’s associates had beaten Navy officer Lieutenant Wasif Ahmed Khan.
AKM Hafeez Akhter, Additional Police Commissioner of the Detective Branch (DB) of Dhaka Metropolitan Police (DMP), stated it in response to queries from reporters at a press conference at Minto Road in the capital on Saturday.
He said Irfan Selim was in the car at the time of the incident. The chargesheet was prepared after the investigation found his associates involved in the incident. The chargesheet was submitted against five persons, including Haji Selim’s son Irfan Selim, on February 8 to court.
A Navy officer was allegedly assaulted by a group of people, led by Irfan Selim, near Kalabagan crossing under Dhanmondi Police Station in the evening of October 25 last year after the car owned by lawmaker Hazi Salim hit his (Navy officer’s) motorbike.
Lieutenant Wasif Ahmed Khan of Bangladesh Navy filed a case against seven people, including Irfan Selim and his father’s bodyguard Zahid and five others, accusing them of assaulting him and his wife with Dhanmondi Police Station on October 26.
Lieutenant Wasif, in his complainant, said the car first hit the motorcycle while he was returning home with his wife after purchasing some books. As he tried to protest the incident, some people got down from the car, assaulted him and knocked out his one tooth.
