Update : 12 Mar 2014, 09:57 PM

A man dubbed as “war criminal” in association with his cohorts in Begumganj upazila of the district allegedly vandalised the house of a witness in a war crimes case.

The incident occurred early yesterday in the village of Choia Hossainpur under Rajganj union in the upazila.

Locals said Belal ‘Rajakar’ – as he was known in the village for his alleged involvement in war crimes – allegedly vandalised the house of Md Abdul Gafur around 4am yesterday. Gafur was a witness in the war crimes case against Belal. The case was lodged with the judicial magistrate court of Noakhali on May 18, 2010, by one Moklesur Rahaman, son of Mofij Mia in the same village.

Mostafijur Rahaman, officer-in-charge of Begumganj Model police station, said the lawmen rushed to the spot immediately after hearing the news of vandalism and brought the situation under control.

A legal battle over a piece of land was going on between Belal and Gafur for a long time, the OC said, adding that on Tuesday Belal got the court verdict in his favour, and a sheer vengeance might have led to the vandalism.

Gafur said he would file a case with the police station in this connection.
