Agitated local people blockaded a busy road in the city’s Uttara area, protesting the denial of recording a case in connection with a child murder.
Local sources said dozens of protestors brought out procession carrying the body of the slain child.
Later they held a protest rally in front of the Azampur Muktijodda Market.
According to Sub Inspector Sujon Miah of Dakkhin Khan Police Station, Rifat, a seven years old child, who was son of one Abdur Rashid, went on missing on Monday.
After searching the area, local people found the body inside the house of Ojit Kumar Boshak early Tuesday. There were several injuries marks on his body.
Later, Abdur Rashid went to the concerned police station for filing the case. But police denied lodging the case for mysterious reasons.
Protestors alleged that getting bribes from Ojit, police denied recording the case.
However, after the protest, police recorded murder case in connection with the murder.
Talking to this correspondent on Wednesday afternoon, a senior officer of Uttara division of Dhaka Metropolitan Police, on condition of anonymity, claimed they actually recorded the case on Wednesday.
“But I don’t know the reason why the family members brought out the protest march and made allegations against police.”
Responding to a question, the police officer said, “I along with the Officer-in-Charge stayed around three hours at the resident of the victim to investigate the incident.”
During the blockade, transport movement came to a halt, causing serious traffic jam.
