A court here on Thursday issued a warrant for the arrest of Prothom Alo editor Matiur Rahman, deputy editor Anisul Hoque and seven other people in a case filed over the death of Dhaka Residential Model College student Nayeemul Abrar Rahat from electrocution.

Dhaka additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Kaisarul Islam passed the order after taking cognisance of a police report submitted by investigation officer Abdul Alim, also officer-in-charge of Mohammadpur Police Station, reports UNB.

The IO submitted the report under section 304(A) of the Penal Code.

The eight other accused are Kabir Bakul, Shubashish Pramanik Shuvo, Mohitul Alam Pavel, Shahporan Tushar, Jasim Uddin Opu, Mosharraf Hossain, Sujon and Kamrul Haider.

Victim's father Mujibur Rahman filed the case with Dhaka the same court on November 6 last.

Ninth grader Nayeemul Abrar died after being electrocuted behind the stage at an event organised by Kishor Alo, a publication of Prothom Alo, at Dhaka Residential Model College on November 1.

In the case, Mujibur Rahman alleged that the organisers had negligence in ensuring safety regarding electronic wires at the venue, which cost the life of his son.

He also alleged that Abrar was taken to Universal Medical College Hospital at Mohakhali although Shaheed Suhrawardy Hospital was close to the programme venue.

He accused Kishor Alo and school authorities of concealing the information of Abrar’s death and continuing the programme despite the tragic incident.
