Joint Commissioner (JC) of Dhaka Metropolitan Police (DMP) Biplob Kumar Sarkar has categorically said that the personal liability of any police personnel can’t be pressed on the whole police department.
“Police force will not bear the liability of additional deputy commissioner (ADC) Harun or Rashid, who was recently transferred to the APBn for beating up two leaders of Bangladesh Chhatra League,” he told the journalists at his office here yesterday.
Biplob said that a six-member delegation comprising the president and general secretary of Bangladesh Chhatra League (BCL) came to the DMP Headquarters and met Commissioner in this connection.
A victim of the incident was also accompanied with the delegation. The BCL leaders expressed their dismay along with several demands on behalf of the organization.
During the meeting, the DMP Commissioner told the BCL leaders that Bangladesh Police is a very pro-fessional organization. “Bangladesh Police will not bear the liability of any individual. This is quite clear.
When the incident came to everyone’s attention through newspapers, our Commissioner Sir immediately removed him (ADC Harun) from the Ramana division,” Biplob said quoting the DMP Commissioner.
Later, the IGP transferred him from the DMP to the APBn. Besides, the DMP formed a probe commit-tee in this regard, he added.
The Joint Commissioner, however, said that the DMP Commissioner told the probe committee to com-plete the investigation professionally and submit report without biasing anyone.
“The Commissioner also assured that whoever is involved in the unwanted incident from the highest to the lowest level of police force. Stern action will be taken against them, who will be responsible, based on the report of the probe body,” he said quoted the DMP Commissioner.
