Enamul Haque, an auto-rickshaw driver, missed a couple of installments, angering Majnu Mia, the money lender

A loan shark reportedly beat up and then mutilated a man’s ear for failing to pay interest on borrowed money in Bogra’s Shajahanpur upazila on Tuesday.

The victim’s wife filed a written complaint against five local money lenders with Shajahanpur police station in this connection on Wednesday, according to OC Abdullah Al Mamun.

The accused are Majnu Mia, 45, Jahurul Islam, 36, Shafiqul Islam, 35, Md Shafi, 30, and Azizar Rahman, 30.

The victim’s wife, Nazma Begum, said that her husband, Enamul Haque, a CNG-run auto-rickshaw driver by profession, had borrowed Tk20,000 from Majnu Mia by mortgaging her gold earrings for her treatment.

“We had to pay Tk2,000 as interest every week,” she said, adding that they had missed a couple of installments due to her illness, which infuriated Majnu.

Nazma said that Majnu came to their house with his men on Tuesday and beat up her husband, before mutilating his left ear with a brick. “They also assaulted me when I tried to help my husband.”

She urged the local administration to take action against the loan sharks.

Police were yet to arrest any of the accused as of Wednesday afternoon.

OC Mamun said police would take legal action after investigating the complaint.

Majnu could not be reached for comment over the phone.
