A Sylhet court has placed constable Titu Chandra Das on a five-day remand over death of a youth at Bandar Bazar police outpost in Sylhet.
Justice Jihadur Rahman of Sylhet's Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate's Court granted his remand on Tuesday afternoon.
Titu was working in Bandarbazar outpost and was temporarily suspended after death of Raihan.
PBI Sylhet Superintendent of Police (SP) Khaleduzzaman said, "He was arrested on Tuesday afternoon and later produced before the court."
This is the first time anyone has been arrested in this sensational case.
Rayhan Ahmed, who was beaten to death on October 11, in police custody at the Bandar Bazar police outpost, had 111 injury marks and two of his nails were pulled off, according to the autopsy report.
Rayhan died in police custody following the brutal torture, his family alleged. However, police denied the allegation and said he was caught by locals while mugging and was lynched. Police said they had found Rayhan wounded by the mob lynching and took him to a hospital where he died.
On October 12, Rayhan's wife filed a case under the Torture and Custodial Death (Prevention) Act 2013 with Sylhet Kotwali Police Station.
Later, an investigation committee was formed, and it found primary evidence of torture. Following the recommendation of the committee, Bandar Bazar outpost in-charge Sub-Inspector Akber Hossain Bhuiya, and three constables – Harunur Rashid, Towhid Miah, and Titu Chandra Das – were suspended.
