"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.
