A court here today placed registrar Dr Abduallh Al-Mamun of the National Institute of Mental Health and Hospital on a 2-day remand in a case filed over the death of Senior Assistant Superintendent of Police (ASP) Anisul Karim Shipon.
ASP Shipon died of severe assaults by employees of the Mind Aid Mental Health Hospital in capital's Adabar area on November 9.
Dhaka Metropolitan Magistrate Shahidul Islam today passed the order of a two-day remand after Investigating Officer (IO) of Adabar Police Station Inspector (Operations) Faruk Mollah sought a 10-day remand for more quizzing in the incidents.
Earlier, Tejgaon police arrested Mamun today.
ASP Anisul Karim was admitted to the Mind Aid Hospital with severe mental problems on November 9 around 12:15 pm and he died shortly after being admitted there.
CCTV footage showed that some hospital staffers physically assaulted Anisul after taking him inside a room. He was beaten in the hospital's aggressive management room.
He was not admitted even after being unconscious for a long time. At around 12 noon on that day, the people of the hospital took him to the National Heart Institute. The doctor on duty there said that Shipon died before he was taken to the hospital.
Shipon died at 'Mind Aid Hospital' some moments after he went to the hospital for treatment. His family members claimed that the hospital staffers beat him to death. Police have also collected CCTV footage from the hospital of the incident.
It was seen that around 11:55 pm, police officer Shipon was dragged into a room by several staff. He was thrown to the ground by six employees of the hospital. Then, two more employees dressed in blue grabbed his leg.
At that time, two employees on the side of the head were hitting him with their elbows. Arif Mahmud, manager of the hospital, was standing next to him. Anisul's hands were tied behind her back with a piece of blue cloth. When Anisul was turned upside down four minutes later, his body was numb.
An employee then splashed water on his face. Anisul Karim was not moving even then. The staff then cleaned the floor of the room.
Seven minutes later, a woman wearing a white apron entered the room. The door of the room was closed for 11 minutes. She pumped his chest in 13 minutes and failed to regain his sense.
Earlier, Shipon was treated by Registrar Dr Abdullah Al Mamun and he referred ASP Shipon to Mind Aid Hospital. He was arrested on charges of involvement in the killing.
Victim's father Faijuddin Ahmed filed a murder case with Adabor Police Station, accusing 15 people, including five shareholders of the hospital.
