Two of the accused arrested, drives underway to arrest the rest, say police

A businessman has filed a case against eight activists of Jubo League and Bangladesh Chhatra League for demanding ransom and physically assaulting his 15-year-old shop employee in Natore.

Confirming the matter, OC of Natore police station Md Mansur Rahman said that they had already arrested two accused in this case. 

The arrestees are Ekram Hossain alias Sumon, 35, from Nabinagar village of the sadar upazila, and Md Abir Hossain, 26, of the town. 

The other accused in the case are Rony Ahmed, general secretary of Jubo League (ward 4 of Natore municipality), his brother Rabiul Awal Bappi, member of Jubo League, Abdullah Hill Shuvo, president of the municipal unit BCL and former organizing secretary of the district unit BCL.

Businessman Abdus Salam said that he had been in a dispute with Sumon over business matters since Friday.

“On Saturday evening, with the help of Abir and Sumon, Bappi and Md Moni picked me up and my shop employee Foisal on a motorcycle and took us to the temporary office of Jubo League in Kanaikhali area of the city.

“Later, they called Foisal a thief and told me to pay Tk3 lakh.” 

As he refused to pay, the accused pulled out Foisal’s left index fingernails. “They also asked me to bring my wife's jewellery from home,” Salam added.

He further said that he had given his R-One-Five model motorcycle to the accused at that time but they demanded another Tk2 lakh. “They also threatened to kill me if I informed the police.”

But Salam said he was forced to inform the police about the matter since he could not afford the money. “Upon hearing the incident, the police rushed to the spot and recovered the boy and the motorcycle.”

Injured Foisal has been admitted to Natore Sadar Hospital for medical treatment.

Ruhul Amin Biplob, acting general secretary of the district unit Jubo League, described it as a brutal incident. 

“Whoever is involved in such incidents should be brought under the law, and exemplary punishment should be ensured.”

Natore Superintendent of Police Liton Kumar Saha said police were conducting raids to arrest the rest of the accused.
