Court allows police to conduct Fardin's dope test
Staff Reporter :
A Dhaka court on Wednesday allowed police to conduct drug test on Fardin Iftekhar Dihan, the lone accused arrested in a case filed over the rape and murder of an O-level student in Dhaka's Kalabagan area.
Dhaka Metropolitan Magistrate Begum Yeasmin Ara passed the order after Investigation Officer AFM Asaduzzaman, also an inspector of Kalabagan Police Station, filed a petition in this regard.
On January 10, the same court allowed police to conduct DNA test of Fardin and the victim's blood-stained clothes following two separate petitions submitted by the IO.
The victim's father filed the case with Kalabagan Police Station against Fardin under the Women and Children Repression Prevention Act on January 7.
In the case statement, the complainant alleged that Fardin tricked his daughter to go to his flat in Kalabagan area and raped her when his family members were not home.
Due to rape, the victim bled profusely and became unconscious. Fardin then took her to hospital to deflect blame, the victim's father alleged.
On January 8, Fardin gave his confessional statement to Dhaka Metropolitan Magistrate Md Mamunur Rashid in the case.
The magistrate sent Fardin to jail after recording the confessional statements that day.
