Provide Tonu’s full DNA report: Court orders CID


Dhaka-A court here on Sunday ordered the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) to provide the full report of the DNA test, conducted on the body of slain college student Sohagi Jahan Tonu, to the medical board formed for her 2nd autopsy.Additional Senior Judicial Magistrate of Comilla Joynab Begum passed the order asking the DNA analyst Special Superintendent of Police Nasima Begum to provide the report, said sub-inspector of Comilla Court Police Badal Biswas.
Earlier, a Comilla court ordered the CID to give the DNA report of the two samples — teeth and spermatozoa — out of total seven samples to the medial board following pleas filed by the board.
However, CID replied that it would be easier to give the full report instead of giving the reports on two samples.
Following this, CID Inspector Gazi M Ibrahim, also the investigative officer of the case, filed a petition on Thursday seeking a court order to pass the full DNA report to the medical board.
On March 30, Tonu’s body was exhumed from her grave for collecting DNA sample, fresh post mortem and proper investigation of the case.
Later, members of Crime Scene Unit of CID brought the DNA and other samples of teeth, nails and body to Dhaka for examination.
Sohagi Jahan Tonu, second year student of History Department of Comilla Victoria College and member of Victoria College Theatre, was found dead in a bush beside a culvert inside the Comilla Cantonment area on March 20.
