Hearing of Badda Renu lynching case adjourned till Nov 2


DHAKA Oct 1, 2020 (BSS) – A Dhaka court today adjourned till November 2 the hearing of a case lodged over killing of one Taslima Begum Renu in a mob
beating in North Badda area in the capital last year.

Today was fixed for taking charge-sheet filed in the case, into cognizance.
But Dhaka Metropolitan Magistrate Sadbir Yasir Ahsan Chowdhury deferred the
hearing over the missing document of the case.

Earlier on September 10, investigation officer and DB police inspector
Abdul Haque filed charge-sheet against 15 accused in the case.

The charge-sheeted accused are- Ibrahim alias Hridoy Mollah, Ria Begum
Moyna, Abul Kalam Azad, Kamal Hossain, Md Shahin, Bacchu Miah, Md Bappi,
Murad Miah, Sohel Rana, Asadul Islam, Bellal Mollah, Md Raju, Mohin Uddin,
Jafar Hossain Patwari and Wasim Ahmed.

Of the fifteen, as the last two were juveniles; the IO filed separate
doshipotro against them.

Taslima Begum Renu, 40, a single-mother of two, was brutally beaten to
death by a mob on suspicion of being a child lifter, in front of North Badda
Government Primary School in the morning on July 20, 2019.

It was later learned that Renu went there to take information regarding
admission of her daughter Tahsin Tuba, 4, at that school.

Renu’s nephew Nasir Uddin filed the case with Badda Police Station against
400-500 unidentified people.

Police scrutinizing the vicious video clippings of the incident, managed
to arrest almost all the culprits, including Ria Begum, 35, who started the
ruckus by terming Renu a child lifter, and Hridoy, the man who was seen most
active in beating Renu, even thrashing her seemingly lifeless body.
