At first, Facebook did not understand that businessman Abu Mohsin Khan would commit suicide by shooting himself in the head with a pistol. The Criminal Investigation Department (CID) of the police told Facebook that Mohsin was normal at the beginning of the live, they did not think he would commit suicide.
CID Chief Additional Inspector General (IGP) Mahbubur Rahman made the remarks at a seminar on suicide prevention at the Malibagh CID office on Wednesday afternoon. Mohsin is the father-in-law of the filmmaker Riaz.
Abu Mohsin Khan, 56, was a businessman by profession. He is the father-in-law of the filmmaker Riaz. He lived in his flat in building No. 25, Road No. 6, Dhanmondi. He came to Facebook Live from that house at around 9 pm on February 2 and shot himself in the head with his licensed pistol. The news quickly spread on Facebook.
CID chief Mahbubur Rahman said, “Mohsin was on Facebook Live for more than 16 and a half minutes. Why did CID not know about this live incident? I sat down with the CID cyber police officers. Am I not responsible? What could I do to prevent it? No one blamed me for this. I blamed myself for what I saw. ‘
The CID chief said Facebook had been contacted, adding that “Facebook told us that Mohsin was normal at the beginning of the live talk, they did not think he would commit suicide.” The way he was talking at first, they (Facebook) did not understand that Mohsin would commit suicide. At first Mohsin was talking about family life, personal life, business life. Due to this, Facebook could not understand the issue of suicide. Two and a half minutes before the end of the live, Facebook realized that Mohsin would commit suicide. Facebook has been asked to work with us to prevent suicide. ”
Mahbubur Rahman said the CID was working to prevent suicide. “When Mohsin started live, who was watching live, we tried to track them down from the cyber police,” he said. The purpose of tracking is not to blame anyone, but to make them aware. So that in future they can be aware and let us know. ‘
