The family of a union parishad member in Jessore has accused the Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) of trying to frame him in a case of possession of weapons and bullets.

Farhana Sultana Rima, the wife of Habibur Rahman Biswas, a member of Putkhali Union Parishad under Sharsha upazila, made the allegation against RAB-6 at a press conference at her house in Jessore town’s Kharki area on Tuesday evening.

Rima, reading from a written statement, said that on October 29 (Wednesday), RAB members came to her house in Jessore town’s Kharki area at around 11pm, detained her husband Habibur and took him away from there without any valid reason.

“The RAB members later took Habibur to his Putkhali village under Sharsha upazila and entered his home there by breaking through the main gate.” 

The RAB members also broke CCTV cameras and carried out vandalism at different parts of the home, she said.

“After finding nothing there, the RAB members took Habibur’s elder brother’s signature on a blank sheet of white paper to the effect that nothing had been seized from the home and then went away from there.”

After a while, the members of the elite force came to the home again with a bucket and claimed to have recovered nine pistols, 19 magazines and 50 rounds of bullets, which was false and baseless, said Farhana Sultana Rima at the press conference.

She also claimed that her husband had been framed in a planned way and she therefore sought the help of the Prime Minister in order to get her husband released through an impartial investigation.

Earlier on October 30 (Thursday), RAB-6 Director Lt Colonel Rowshonul Feroz, during a press briefing in Khulna, said members of RAB-6 had arrested Habibur Rahman Biswas, 39, with nine foreign pistols and a huge cache of bullets and ammunition from his house in Benapole’s Putkhali village.
