But from my point of view, after geting information from multiple credible source according to my judgment (including the close relative Army officer who was in charge) I have no doubt in my mind that Tarek Zia was tortured (if you consider pushing hot water by his rear is considered torture) as well as his friend Mamun (by other means also).

Regarding Jalil and Selim, there were also claims from few sources that collaborate similar claim (Jalil-revolving chair and Selim - electric shock and other). However I am not as s100% sure as the other two cases. I use my common sense here: after taken to question, suddenly people start speaking the truth that incriminates not himself but his close one…. that doesn’t make sense. Those “goody-goody interrogation” where they suddenly open up their mouth tactics is not new in human history… its happened lot of cases… it happened in hostage cases…it happened in prisoner cases…. And when they are free …. Story changes and the accusation of torture comes up. So just listening to the interrogation itself, I can neither say nor deny that either ‘torture’ was used or not before that. It’s silly to say one way or other. You need other sources to verify that. But based on the symptoms and the approach the army is taking (all other sources), I am kind of disapointed and kind of little scared about their long term master plan that are in the rumor mill for a while now.

No body is denying the evilness of these four people discussed above. And punishing them for their crime is not the issue to me... its micro analysis... however my concern is one step top... in the macro level...I am kind of disappointed these kind of shoddy cases they are bringing and the ways and means they are doing it.... I see long term bigger consequence for these short cut methods... and unfortunately the people will have to suffer further for these mistakes done again and looks like some of us are supporting/ignoring these issues and more focused on individual micro level and not seeing the bigger picture.
It is open secret how information obtained from any detainee. My point is if you think all the above discussed people are guilty for any misdeed and if you feel they should get tried for their misdeed, then could you please suggest some sorts of mechanism by which justice can be delivered without raising any question regarding transparency, human rights, etc. etc.
My understanding about the current activity is that these bunch of thugs will never speak truth without treating them some way (external/internal), this is one point. another point is that CTG is trying to deliver a fraction of justice (compare to their huge misdeed) they deserved which will be enough to keep them out from participating in the election and if they are inside the bar for one/two term, their place will be filled by better alternative and they will be useless.
