She said, "The plaintiff of the case Dulal confessed that he was not known to Mozammel, and Mozammel never asked extortion to him. In spite of this, the government has not feel shy and did not release him yet."
"In addition, the police have complicated him today (Monday) in another case instead of releasing him," she said.
Sultana Kamal said, an explosive case in which Mozammel has complicated was filed against unknown people. Such cases are using to harass innocent persons like Mozammel. This practice should be ended now.

"In the midst of all the chaotic things happening every day with commuters, Mozammel has been selflessly working for the general people's rights. It is not expected that a man of his caliber is accused in a false case and is in jail now. I strongly condemn this."
"The helpless and innocents are suffering immensely as the law enforcers doing these unlawful things along with corrupt people by using the law in their favour," she said.
At the same time, Sultana Kamal urged the government to provide security for Dulal, who filed the case against Mozammel as Dulal told journalists that he did not know Mozammel. Dulal also claimed that he just signed a piece of paper that was brought to him by two labour leaders.

Ganosamhati Andolon Convenor Junaid Saki said, "A syndicate is massively benefiting from the transport sector. If these people are slightly affected, then the scenario will change. An example of which is Mozammel Hoque Chowdhury."
