Local ruling party leader continues construction inside GK area

A local leader of ruling Awami League along with a realtor on Wednesday continued construction activities inside the Gonoshasthaya Kendra at Savar but the police refused to record any case against them.

In last six days, police took no action against them though they vandalised Gonoshasthaya Kendras’ PHA Bhaban and other structures on Friday by engaging 300 ruling AL men.

They and three others filed cases against GK founder Zafrullah Chowdhury alleging that he had grabbed their land.

The vexatious cases were filed by local AL leader Nasir Uddin, land broker Mohammad Ali, realtor Aminul Islam, local cotton industry owner Kazi Muhibur Rab and locally influential man Syed Selim Ahmed. 

Officer-in-charge of Ashulia police station Rizaul Haque said that after investigation police came to the conclusion no case could be recorded on these land related disputes.

He said that as the court alone could resolve such disputes, ‘We asked both parties to go to court.’ 

Gonoshasthaya Kendra administrative officer Abdus Salam said that the police refused to record four case ‘we tried to file against the attackers who looted and damaged the Gonoshasthaya Kendra on Friday.

He said that since Friday, Ashulia police station repeatedly declined to record any case ‘we tried to file against the attackers.’

Gonoshasthaya Kendra stands on 62 acres of land but quite suddenly five claimers became active demanding its 22 acres of land, said GK officials.

Among them, three claimers, local AL leader Nasir and realtor Aminul Islam and Syed Selim suddenly laid their claims on around two acres land of Gonoshasthaya Kendra. The three claimers became active after Zafrullah Chowdhury drew the government’s wrath for criticising it. 

Salam said that since the police declined to record ‘our cases we would go to the court today to seek justice.’

During Friday’s demonstrations, the right arm of Gono Bishwabidyalay law student Lemon Hossain was fractured in assault by attackers.
Lemon, now under treatment at Gonoshasthaya Kendra Hospital said that the police did not record his case against the attackers.

He is the same Lemon, who in 2011, lost a leg at his village home in Jhalakathi after the RAB fired on his leg at close range prompting nationwide protests.

The OC said that Lemon’s injuries did not justify taking his case. 

Gono Bishwabidylay Kendrio Chhtra Sangsad, Sangbadik Samity, Shubha Sangha, Shaheed Samanesh, Paribesh Club, Brinta and Agni Setu condemned the attacks on the Gonoshasthya Kendra and demanded exemplary punishments to the attackers.
