Suraiya’s mother demands quick trial
Nazma Begum, the Magura woman who was hit by a bullet that also pierced through her unborn baby’s body in 2015, has demanded exemplary punishment for the culprits for whom the baby, Suraiya, lost an eye. The housewife also hoped that the court would complete the trial within the shortest possible time. Magura Additional District and Sessions Judge Syed Arafat Hossain on Tuesday framed charges against 17 ruling party leaders and activists for the death of a small trader, Momin Bhuiyan, and injuries to several others including Nazma during a clash between two groups in Doarpara area of the town on July 23, 2015. The court rejected the discharge petitions filed by five accused and set May 8 to start the trial with the recording of prosecution witness statements. The accused are Sumon Sen, vice-president of district unit Chhatra League; Toiyobur Rahman Tota, general secretary of Somobay League’s district unit; Ali Akbar; Mojibur Rahman; Sumon Ali; Faridur Rahman; Sagor; Bappy Gazi; Ilias Molla; Sohel Mia; Liton Mallick; Milton Mallick; Nazrul Islam; Sobhan Sheikh; Solaiman Hossain; Md Sumon; and Ainal Sheikh. The clash took place between the supporters of two groups of Jubo League, the ruling party’s youth wing, over establishing supremacy in the area. Deceased Momin’s son Rubel filed the case on July 26 against 16 people. Of the accused, one Azibur was killed in an alleged gunfight with the police. The name of another accused was dropped and three new names were added when the police pressed charges against the 17 accused on November 30, 2015. Eight-month pregnant Nazma had to undergo an emergency cesarean at Magura Genera Hospital after she was shot in the abdomen during the clash. Later, she was also taken to Dhaka Medical College Hospital DMCH on July 30. Suraiya was treated at DMCH’s Neonatal Intensive Care Unit for 27 days before being discharged. The bullet went through her right shoulder and right eye. Doctors saved her life but could not recover her eye.
