Staff Reporter :
The High Court on Wednesday fixed November 3 for passing an order on a bail petition filed by former officer-in-charge OC of Sonagazi Police Station Moazzem Hossain in a case filed on charge of recording statement of Feni madrasa  student Nusrat Jahan Rafi and circulating the video on social media without her consent.
The High Court Bench of Justice M Enayetur Rahim and Justice Md Mostafizur Rahman passed the order after hearing a bail petition filed by the former OC Moazzem.
Advocate Abdul Baset Mazumder appeared in the court on behalf of Moazzem Hossain while Deputy Attorney General Sarwar Hossain Bappi stood for the State.
During the hearing, Moazzem's lawyer Advocate Abdul Baset Mazumder prayed to the court for granting bail to his client saying that he did not circulated the video and has been suffering in custody for a long time. Meanwhile, Deputy Attorney General Sarwar Hossain Bappi opposed the appeal of Moazzem.
Moazzem submitted the bail petition to the HC on July 31 through a lawyer, Advocate Rana Kawser in the case filed under the Digital Security Act.
On April 15, Supreme Court lawyer Syed Sayedul Haque Sumon filed the case with Dhaka Cyber Tribunal against Moazzem for recording the statement of sexual assault victim Nusrat on camera without her consent and circulating it on social media.
Nusrat, a student of Sonagazi Islamia Senior Fazil Madrasa in Feni, was set ablaze on April 6 this year allegedly for refusing to withdraw a case filed against the Madrasa Principal, Siraj Ud Doula, for sexually harassing her. She died at Dhaka Medical College Hospital on April 10.
During that time, a video clip showing Moazzem asking Nusrat some humiliating questions and released the video clip on social media, drawing widespread criticism.
Moazzem was suspended on May 8 for negligence of duty and attached to the office of DIG of Rangpur Range.
Police arrested him from the capital's Supreme Court area on June 16. He went into hiding after police authorities allowed him to leave the capital, instead of arresting him, two days after a Dhaka court ordered his arrest.
The arrest warrant, issued on May 27, was widely covered in the media.
A tribunal in Dhaka on June 17 rejected the bail petition of OC Moazzem and sent him to jail in connection with the case filed by Supreme Court lawyer Barrister Sayedul Haque Sumon for recording Nusrat's statement on his phone and circulating the video clip on social media without her consent.
Dhaka Cyber Tribunal Judge Ash Sams Joglul Hossain passed the order after police produced Moazzem in the court a case filed under the Digital Security Act.
Earlier on July 9, the High Court Bench of Justice Md Moinul Islam Chowdhury and Justice Khizir Hayat rejected his bail petition considering that the petition was not properly placed.
