Twoki Mancha demands Shamim Osman’s arrest

Update : 23 May 2014, 09:11 PM

Alleging that Awami League MP Shamim Osman was involved in the sensational seven murders, Santras Nirmul Twoki Manch, an anti-terrorist local organisation, yesterday demanded his immediate arrest.

“The recorded conversations between Shamim Osman and Nur Hossain over the brutal killings of seven people, including Narayanganj city ward councillor Nazrul Islam and lawyer Chandan Kumar Sarker, have been released through the investigating agency. We came to know through newspaper reports that Shamim had hands in the killing,” Mancha convener Rafiur Rabbi and member secretary Halim Azad said in a joint statement.

Observing that Nur Hossain was a creation of Shamim Osman, an MP from Fatullah-Siddhirganj constituency, the statement said: “He turned desperate and became a godfather under his [Shamim’s] patronage. We came to know from newspaper reports that it was Shamim who helped Nur Hossain flee the country.”

Claiming that many facts indicate Shamim’s connection with the seven killings, it said: “We demand that the government immediately arrest and interrogate Shamim Osman.”

Meanwhile, a court has issued a warrant for the arrest of Nur Hossain, the prime accused in the seven-murder case.

Senior Judicial Magistrate KM Mahiuddin issued the arrest warrant in the case filed under the Wildlife Conservation Act in connection with the recovery of birds from his house.

On April 27, Narayanganj panel mayor Nazrul Islam and his three associates and driver were abducted from Fatullah. Hours into their abduction, senior lawyer Chandan Kumar Sarker, and his driver were abducted while they were going to capital Dhaka.
