Monowar Hossain Monir (30), the secretary of Sylhet branch of Jatio Jubo Shonhoti (JP) is the son of Abdus Sattar and Monowara Begum of Gilatola village of Jointapur Upazilla of Sylhet. At around 2.30 pm on 14 September 2011, RAB-9 arrested Monowar Hossain Monir.
Parvin Begum of Shunamgonj told Odhikar that Monir appeared at her home as a false RAB officer and accused her of being involved in the drug trade.

On that case, officers of RAB-9 arrested Monir from the Unique Bus counter at Mendibag, Bisshoroad at Sobhani Ghat in Sylhet. On 24 September 2011, Monir died while under treatment in Sylhet MAG Osmani Medical Hospital.
