Dhaka, June 12: Home Minister Asaduzzaman Khan Kamal has said all routes have been closed for former Sonagazi OC Moazzem Hossain to leave the country.“He is in the country and will be arrested anytime.”

The minister said this while talking to the journalists after ending the innovation fair and showcasing 2019 held at prison department on Wednesday.

On April 15, Syed Sayedul Haque Suman, a lawyer of the Supreme Court, sued Moazzem under the Digital Security Act in connection with recording the footage without Nusrat’s consent and spreading it on social media.

During the questioning, Moazzem taped Nusrat without her consent and illegally posted it on social media.

The footage shows that Moazzem was asking Nusrat multiple “insulting and objectionable” questions one after another.

On April 10, Moazzem was withdrawn as Nusrat’s family alleged that he was not cooperating with them.

On May 8, Moazzem was suspended over negligence of duty and attached to the office of DIG (Rangpur range).

Nusrat, a student of Sonagazi Islamia Senior Fazil Madrasa in Feni’s Sonagazi upazila, was set ablaze on April 6 allegedly for refusing to withdraw a case filed against madrasa principal Siraj Ud Doula for sexually harassing her on March 27.

Nusrat died on April 10 at Dhaka Medical College Hospital.
