  • Print

A man died allegedly under police custody after detective branch (DB) of police arrested 13 gamblers including the deceased at Boyra Bazar in Sarishabari upazila of the district on early Saturday. The deceased was Nazim Uddin, 47, son of late Azimuddin Sikdar of village Shalina in Tangail Sadar upazila.

As a number of people were involved in gambling at the bazaar at mid-night, a team of DB police raided the Bazar around 2.30am.

At that time, sensing the presence of police the gamblers got panicked and started running away to escape arrest. But the police promptly chased the gamblers and managed to detain 13 including Nazim Uddin, said Sademuzzaman, officer-in-charge of Jamalpur DB.

Soon after being detained by the police, the arrestee Nazim fell severely sick and was immediately rushed to Jamalpur General Hospital where on duty emergency medical officer Hasanur Bari Shishir declared him dead, said the Officer-in-Charge (OC).

Contacted, Dr. Shishir said the man (Nazim Uddin) was brought to the hospital dead around 3.45am. "No external injury marks were found in the body, which indicates he might have died from heart attack or from brain stroke," Dr. Shishir said adding that the actual reason behind the death would be known after autopsy.

Meanwhile, an inquest over the death of the man was done in presence of executive magistrate Padmason Singh that did not find any injury mark in the deceased's body, said the DB Officer-in-Charge (OC).

The body was sent to the hospital morgue for autopsy, added the Officer-in-Charge (OC). Family members of the deceased are yet to reach Jamalpur from Tangail as of filing this report at 3.00pm on Saturday.

Local people and the relatives of the man demanded proper investigation of the issue as soon as possible to find the truth of the incident.
