Shillong, June 24: Absconding Meghalaya Police sub-inspector and the then officer-in-charge of Ampati police station in South West Garo Hills Nurul Islam surrendered before a court on Wednesday. Accused of being involved in raping two minor girls on March 13 and March 31, 2013, Islam surrendered before the Meghalaya High Court before being asked to move his bail petition to the District and Session Court in Shillong.

The District and Session judge dismissed the bail petition and Islam was sent to 14 days judicial custody, informed the Superintendent of Police (Shillong city) Vivek Syiem.

The SP also informed that police will start the interrogation from Thursday since a charge-sheet has been filed against him.

Declared a proclaimed offender and termited from police service after his escape from police custody in June 2013, Nurul Islam has been charcheeted under section 376 (2) of the Indian Pel Code and section 6 and 10 of Protection of Children from Sexual offence Act,2012.

Islam's son waz, however, felt that his father was a victim of the "system".

"I know my father well and it's a case of fabrication," stated waz, claiming that his father has been nomited for the President's Medal for meritorious service.

He, however, refused to give a direct answer on his father's whereabouts in the past two years, but was livid in describing the "agony" inflicted on his family by the law enforcing agencies. It may be mentioned that Nurul Islam's bank account was frozen, his assets attached by the court since he failed to turn up after a non-bailable arrest was issued against him.
