75 tons VGD rice recovered from privately owned warehouse, owner detained
Members of Rapid Action Battalion 12 have recovered 75,390kg rice from the Vulnerable Group Feeding (VGD) programme, which was earmarked for destitute women, from a privately-owned rice depot in the Railgate area of Sirajganj’s Sadar upazila. RAB carried out at the the drive at the rice depot of M/S Razzak Traders, owned by one Abdur Razzak, 44, on Wednesday. Razzak, hailing from Sirajganj’s Belkuchi upazila, was detained in connection with the incident following the drive. Company Commander of RAB 12 Sirajganj Camp Major Safayat Ahmed Suman and Executive Officer of Sirajganj Sadar upazila Md Faisal Uddin jointly led the drive. Major Suman told the Dhaka Tribune: “Being tipped off, we had cordoned off the warehouse of Razzak Traders since Tuesday midnight and started the drive on Wednesday morning when the owner stepped in.” “Some 1,706 sacks, marked with the seal of the Directorate General of Food, containing around 75,390kg of rice, were recovered during the drive,” he added. “During primary investigation, the depot owner told us that some representatives of the Union Parishad chairmen, who were assigned to collect and distribute the VGD rice from the government warehouses, used to supply the rice to his depot," the major further said. Sadar upazila Executive Officer Md Faisal Uddin said that the rice was stored for the impoverished women. Every VGD card holder woman is supposed to be provided with 30kg of rice per month. “Filing of a case in this connection is under process,” the executive magistrate added. However, Sirajganj Sadar police station OC Helal Uddin said that no case had been filed in this regard when contacted at the time of filing this report.
