Court Correspondent :
Arrest warrants were issued against Prothom Alo Editor and Publisher Matiur Rahman, Deputy Editor Anisul Hoque and eight others yesterday in a case filed in connection with the death of Naimul Abrar Rahat, a class IX student of Dhaka Residential Model College.
Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Md Kaisarul Islam passed the order after the Investigation Officer of the case Inspector Md Abdul Alim of Mohammadpur Police Station submitted the investigation report in the court.
Eight other accused persons are: Kabir Bakul, Shuvashish Pramanik, Mahitul Alam, Shah Paran Tushar, Jasim Uddin, Mosharraf Hossain, Sujan and Kamrul Hawlader.
The victim's father, Mojibur Rahman, filed the case with the Fourth Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Court of Dhaka on November 6 last year.
Abrar was electrocuted during the anniversary programme of Prothom Alo's youth magazine Kishore Alo on November 1 last year. Some unnamed people linked to the programme were also made accused in the case. Meanwhile, Mojibur complained that his son died due to negligence of the event organizers.
Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate (in-charge) Md Aminul Haque heard the complaint and took it into cognizance. The court ordered the Officer-in-Charge of Mohammadpur Police Station to submit an investigation report in the case on December 1 merging it with the report of the unnatural death case filed earlier in this connection. In the complaint, Mojibur said his son was electrocuted  and became unconscious at 3:30pm on November 3, last year while attending the programme of Kishore Alo.
The 14-year-old boy was taken to Universal Medical College and Hospital in Mohakhali after 45 minutes of  the incident happened whereas Shaheed Suhrawardy Medical College Hospital was very close to the event venue, Mojibur complained, adding that his son was declared dead at 4:51 pm that day.
Abrar might have lived had the authorities immediately taken him to the nearby hospital, he complained.
