Amirul Islam, the officer-in-charge of Ghoraghat Police Station, was withdrawn for negligence of duty on Friday, nine days after an attack on Ghoraghat Upazila Nirbahi Officer Wahida Khanam and her father Omar Ali.


Superintendent of Dinajpur Police Anwar Hossain said OC Amirul was withdrawn as per the order of high officials on Friday, reports UNB.


He was attached to the district police lines.
