I’ve been wronged for my reports on health ministry: Rozina

This story first appeared in The Daily Star

Prothom Alo’s Senior Reporter Rozina Islam has said that she is being treated wrongfully.

She said this in presence of journalists while being taken to jail after a Dhaka court rejected a remand plea of police this morning.

“I’m being wronged for my reports on health ministry,” Rozina, escorted by police, said when one of the journalists asked if she has anything to say.

Law enforcers, while taking her away, were then heard saying that she is not allowed to talk to the media.
