Sobuj Mia, 40, father of Taslima, was beaten by Jubed Talukdar and his men at Mohilla Market in Kolshindur area on Wednesday night, as Taslima refused to attend a school match.
Family member said the Under-16 girls would be honoured at a programme on September 17 in Dhaka, but Jubed asked them not to attend the programme, rather he asked Taslima and some other girls to attend a school match instead.
This incident takes place a day after a TV report showed nine girls of the squad travelling in a rather below-standard Mymensingh-bound regular bus service with no team management personnel accompanying them.
On the other hand, Bangladesh Football Federation in a statement on Wednesday claimed that they had indeed offered the players, all from Mymensingh, a more comfortable journey but they preferred returning like they usually do.
Bangladesh U-16 Women’s team emerged unbeaten champions of Group C of the AFC U-16 Women’s Championship Qualifiers with 4-0 goals victory over UAE on Monday.
After the incident, school committee suspended Jubayed on Thursday afternoon. Sobuj Mia filed a case with Dobaura police station on the day against Jubed.
Officer-in-Charge of Dobaura police station Shawkat Alam told the Dhaka Tribune that they were conducting drives to arrest Jubed.
