After some time, the owner of the car (Dhaka Metro-G-42-1301) asked to know the reason for filing the case against the dealer Akhtar. I explained the matter by showing him the video of Rang parking from the body worn camera. At this time he started abusing me in unspeakable language and left.’
Hasina Khatun said, ‘After a while, her daughter Tasfia Islam asked me to watch the video. I also show him the video and explain. But they continued to abuse me in unspeakable language and both mother and daughter kept killing, punching and slapping me. They threw my walkie talkie and body worn camera on the street. Later two constables on duty came with me and tried to calm them down and attacked them.’
