Crime situation worsens again in Khulna region

Ahsanul Amin George, Khulna :

Law and order situation has deteriorated again in Khulna region. Drug peddling, snatching, robbery and eve-teasing (Sexual harassment) by the stalkers have been increasing in Khulna city and at nine upazila areas of Khulna district. School and college going girls are in fear of molesting by some stalkers who often gossip, tease girls, even some girl-students cannot go to their educational institutions due to teasing by the desperate stalkers.
Drug trading, stealing, robbery, snatching and stalking are common features of Khulna region.  Members of Law Enforcing agencies are playing mysterious and silent roles in this respect, it is alleged. On the other hand, due to repeated offences, occurred in recent times by police, particularly by the members of Detective Branch (DB), Policemen are suffering from acute "Image Crisis" in south-western region of the country. Sources said, like other parts of country, policemen, particularly the members of Detective Branch (DB) are still harassing the common innocent people of south-western region of the country. In spite of fact that the high-officials of police department recently told before the journalists that stern action would be taken against those law enforcers who harass the common innocent people but some dishonest and disloyal policemen of different police stations and members of detective branch (DB) of different districts and also DB personnel of KMP and BMP have been harassing the common innocent people and pedestrians in different ways without any hesitation.
Local people and eye-witnesses alleged that on June 8, 2018(On Friday) at around 2.45 pm, SI Babul, a Sub-Inspector of Horintana police station under Khulna Metropolitan Police (KMP) in Khulna city arrested one Shamsu Mia resident of South Pabla area under Daulatpur police station who is a marked drug-peddler . At the same time SI Babul recovered 99 (Ninety Nine) bottles Indian contraband Phensedyl from a bag kept in the hand of Shamsu from Zero-point Police Check-post area under Horintana police station. However, SI Babul in collaboration with the Officer-in-charge (OC) Nasim Khan allegedly took Taka 30 thousand and disappeared 99 bottles of seized Phensedyl . This OC Nasim Khan is a controversial person because a case was filed in a Khulna Court against him ten other policemen on charge of gouging out both eyes of One Shahjalal while Nasim Khan was OC in Khalishpur police station in the city. The case is still pending and the learned court directed to investigate the matter to Deputy Police Commissioner of Detective Branch (DC, DB) of Khulna Metropolitan Police (KMP). However, despite several attempts, this correspondent could not contact OC Nasim Khan and SI Babul for the query of the matter of phensedlys and realization of taka 30 thousand.   A day-laborer is compelled to flee away from his residence at Daulatpur area in Khulna city even after leaving his mother in fear of harassment by SI Chinmoy Das of Daulatpur police station under Khulna Metropolitan Police (KMP) who has close relation with a broker and also the so-called police source named Abdul Gaffar, locally known as "Thief Gaffar". This Gaffar has previous enmity with that day-laborer and as such with a view to give a good lesson, Gaffar demanded Taka 10 thousand to that day-laborer tempting to save him from the harassment by SI Chinmoy, alleged the day-laborer.
