Mohammad Rahmat Ullah, student of Dhaka University, was allegedly tortured by police

At around 12.00 pm, on March 6, 2011, Mohammad Rahmat Ullah (20), a First Year student of the Islamic Studies Department, University of Dhaka, was arrested by the police forces of Shahabag Police Station, Dhaka Metropolitan Police, after a large protest rally brought out by students of Dhaka University. The family of Rahmat Ullah alleged
that after being detained, Rahmat had been severely tortured by police. The police of Shahabag Police Station denied this allegation. Odhikar could not interview Rahmat Ullah as he was detained in Dhaka Central Jail at the time of this fact finding; and Odhikar did not get permission to visit him there.

Odhikar urges the government to investigate the incident of torture on Rahmat Ullah and the death of Redwan impartially; and punish the perpetrators. Odhikar also condemns the damaging of vehicles belonging to people who have no connection with these incidents.
