Chhatra League leader ruptures policeman's eardrum

Update : 02 Nov 2016, 11:15 AM
Akhter Hossain, BCL's Shariatpur Sadar upazila unit vice-president, allegedly assaulted Nayek Selim Matubbar at the Shariatpur Sadar Hospital around Tuesday noon. Selim has been sent to Dhaka for better treatment. Sadar police sources said Akhter Hossain was visiting the hospital's medical officer Debashish Saha. His uncle, Sadar Upazila Parishad Vice-Chairman Alamgir Hossain Howladar was present with him. According to the sources, the doctor refused when Akhter demanded a medical certificate for a patient the doctor had not seen. When the doctor refused him, he became aggressive. It was at this point that Selim reportedly stepped in to save the doctor and was himself assaulted. The hospital's ENT specialist Imran Khan, who saw Nayek Selim after the incident, said his eardrum had been ruptured and he was bleeding out of the ear. Deputy Commissioner Mahmudul Hossain Khan and Superintendent of Police Saifullah Al Mamun visited the nayek at the hospital and held a meeting with the doctors there. Later in the day police raided Alamgir Hossain Howladar's home and a clinic that he owns to arrest Akhter. Also, a mobile court of the district administration shut down the clinic and seized its equipment for violating regulations. Clinic patients were transferred to the Sadar Hospital. Shariatpur Civil Surgeon Moshiur Rahman alleged Akhter often illegally demanded medical certificates from doctors at the hospital and assaulted those who refused to comply. Akhter's uncle upazila Vice-Chairman Alamgir claimed he was in the doctor's chamber on Tuesday noon when he heard a commotion outside and went out to find Akhter locked in a scuffle with a man. “After the man said he was a police officer I beat Akhter and chased him away,” he said. “I apologised to the policeman too, but still they raided my house and shut down my clinic,” he said. Akhter has been missing since the incident. His mobile phone was turned off. Sadar police Officer-in-Charge Khalilur Rahman said two separate cases had been filed, one by police and one by the doctor, against Akhter and two others. “Police are trying to arrest them,” he said.
