Staff Reporter, Ctg

Several hundred people of Satkania in Chattogram yesterday formed a human chain demanding withdrawal of the case filed against managing director of Kabir Steel Re-rolling Mills (KSRM) Md Shahjahan over the incident of nine women’s death in a stampede when thousands of people gathered to collect zakat and essentials provided by the industrial group in Satkania upazila on Monday.

Local people formed the human chain around 10am at Hangarpur village in Nolua of Satkania which continued till 1 pm.  Monowara Begum, 65, a local resident of the area, said “We want withdrawal of the case against Shahjahan. He always helps us.” Md Shafique, a local resident of Satkania, said The Independent, Shajahan helps the poor people of the society in different ways. Like every year he was distributing zakat and ifatr items to the poor people of the area on Monday. He had no intention to kill the people.  It was nothing but an accident, said he. Nine women were killed and around 40 injured in a stampede when over 30,000 people gathered to collect zakat and essentials provided by the industrial group at Gatiadenga.
