Jhalakathi freedom fighter murderers still at large
A key witness of a case filed over the murder of a freedom fighter at Rajapur of the district has been threatened with dire consequences by the accused, all leaders and activists of ruling Awami League’s youth wing Jubo League. Police failed to arrest any of the accused as of yesterday, two days after Abdus Salam Khan, also a retired school teacher, succumbed to his injuries. Salam’s son Shamsul Alam Murad filed the case Tuesday night against 10-11 people including eight named. The accused include Saturia UP Member and Jubo League leader Bachchu Hawlader and Ward 6 Jubo League President Shah Alam. The witness, school teacher Mariam Akhter Mukta who fled her home in fear of reprisal, told the Dhaka Tribune yesterday that she had been threatened by Awami League leader Thandu, brother of Saturia Union Parishad Chairman Siddiqur Rahaman. “He warned me not to give statement in the case; or else, they will kill me and my family,” she alleged. Mukta also blamed Rajapur OC Sheikh Munir-Ul Gias for his inaction and failure to ensure security of the plaintiff and the witnesses. OC Munir said that he had not received any formal complaint. Superintendent of Police Md Zobaidur Rahman told the Dhaka Tribune that they were trying to arrest the accused. Meanwhile, a probe body formed by the district administration has started its work. “The committee led by Additional Deputy Commissioner Manik Rahman has been asked to submit a report by December 1,” said Md Mizanul Islam Chowdhury, the deputy commissioner of Jhalakathi. On Monday afternoon, Salam went to his relative Mukta’s house at Aamtoli of Rajapur to pay her dues at Abdur Rahman Khan Kindergarten, established after the name of Salam’s father. At that time, a group of youths led by accused Bachchu and Shah Alam attacked the house and tortured Salam claiming that he had indecent relation with Mukta. He was again beaten up at Aamtoli Bazar. The retired school teacher died at his home in Shialkathi area of Bhandaria in Pirojpur the next morning.
