A woman on Monday filed a case naming four people, including Chattogram Central Jail superintendent, jailer, on-duty assistant surgeon and one Ratan Bhattacharjee, for torturing and injecting poison in a bid to murder her husband in jail.

Jharna Rani Debnath, of Dakkhin Katli of Pahartali in Chattogram, filed the case for attempt to murder her husband Rupom Kanti Debnath, who is in jail since December 15, 2020, said the plaintiff’s lawyer Bhulan Lal Bhowmik.

The plaintiff filed the case with Chattogram metropolitan magistrate court-2 of judge Hossain Mohammad Reza, who accepted the case, said the lawyer.  He, referring to the case statement, said that the plaintiff’s husband was arrested over a case filed by Ratan as he had enmity with Rupom over monetary transaction and the accused persons in collusion with each other tortured Rupom with electric shock and poisonous injection in a bid to kill him in jail.

Rupom was undergoing treatment at Chattogram Medical College Hospital in jail custody, according to the lawyer.
