Plaintiffs allege life threat

STAFF REPORTER, Dhaka

Plaintiffs in a cheque forgery case on Monday alleged that lives of their family members are under threat, as the accused, powerful people, were threatening them and trying to abduct them. “Being plaintiffs in the case, we are on the run, while the convicted criminals are on the prowl,” said Jesmine Akhter at a press conference at Dhaka Reporters’ Unity.

She, along with her husband Engr Dewan Shamsul Huda, sought the intervention of the Prime Minister, the Home Minister and the Army chief to save their lives.

Jesmine Akhter, an expecting mother, said they bought a flat No. 3/A (3rd floor) at House No. 423, Road No. 7, Mirpur DOHS, in the Pallabi police station area, on September 5, 2016 at a cost of Tk. 1.40 crore from its owners Ms Musrat Jahan and her daughter Karisa Musrat on initial (baina) deed and they lived there for two years.

She said: “As the owners were dilly-dallying registration of the flat in our favour, we lodged a case based on the cheque provided us by Musrat Jahan against the money we had paid. Subsequently, the court sentenced Musrat Jahan to one year in jail and fined her Tk. 1.40 crore. After announcement of the verdict, both Musrat and her daughter forced us out from the flat, grabbed our belongings, including 25 'bhori' of gold and cash. The accused did not appeal before the higher court against the verdict.  Later, we filed another case seeking justice from the court to get back our belongings."

Jesmine said on May 12 the court issued a warrant against them, but they have not appeared before the court and nor have the police arrested them. In the meantime, she alleged that her husband was abducted from Indoil bus stand road at Adomdighi, on the Naogaon-Bogura highway, by some armed youths on the night of June 9.

On June 10, the abductors released her husband Engr Dewan Shamsul Huda in the Kachukhet area near the cantonment, after making him sign on a blank piece of paper, she said.
