10 hospital staff remanded over murder of ASP Shipon
A Dhaka court today placed 10 staff of Mind Aid Psychiatry and De-Addiction Hospital, where Senior Assistant Superintendent of Police Anisul Karim Shipon was beaten to death yesterday, on seven-day remand each in the case lodged over the murder.
Dhaka Metropolitan Magistrate Shahidul Islam passed the order as police produced the accused before the court and investigation officer and Adabor Police Station Inspector Mohammad Faruk Mollah pleaded to place them on 10-day remand.
The 10 accused are- hospital marketing manager Arif Mahmud Joy, coordinator Redwan Sabbir, chef Md Masud, pharmacist Md Tanvir Hasan, ward boys Jobayer Hossain, Md Tanim Mollah, Sajib Chowdhury, Asim Chandra Paul, Md Liton Ahammed, and Md Saiful Islam Palash.
The IO in his remand plea said the accused were amassing money for a long by running the unauthorized hospital.
“The victim was brought to the hospital at around 11.30am on November 9 for mental treatment, but no doctor was present at that time. The accused took the victim to the observation room on the second floor of the hospital by force. They beat him repeatedly there, at one stage a couple of them pinned him on the ground and thrashed him on head and shoulder. They tied the victim with a scarf,” the IO said.
ASP Shipon became senseless and when his relatives took him to National Institute of Cardiovascular Diseases (NICVD), the attending doctor there declared him brought dead.
ASP Shipon’s father filed the case with Adabor Police Station against 15 people, and police after scrutinizing the CCTV footage of the hospital, arrested 10 people so far.
