The verdict in a case filed against former officer-in-charge of Sonagazi Police Station Moazzem Hossain under the Digital Security Act is scheduled to be delivered on Thursday.

Cyber Tribunal Judge Md As-Shams Jaglul Hossain fixed the date on November 21 after arguments from both sides concluded.

Moazzem had pleaded not guilty in the case filed for unlawfully interrogating deceased Feni madrasa student Nusrat Jahan Rafi and recording it on phone.

A video of the incident went viral on the social media, prompting lawyer Sayed Sayedul Haque Suman to file a case against the police officer on April 15. The former OC was arrested on June 16 from capital’s Shahbagh area and indicted on July 17.

Moazzem had summoned Sonagazi Islamia Senior Fazil Madrasa's Principal Sirajuddoula and Nusrat, who accused the teacher of sexually harassing her. 

The girl’s mother had filed a case over her daughter’s harassment.

The former OC interrogated Nusrat in the absence of her lawyer or any other woman and used inappropriate language.

Nusrat was later set on fire on April 6 at an exam centre, reportedly by people loyal to Sirajuddoula. She died on April 10 at the Dhaka Medical College Hospital.

Moazzem was initially withdrawn and later suspended on May 10. A tribunal ordered his arrest on May 27 after investigators found allegations brought against him to be true.
