Harun Aur Rashid, president of East Mandari Government Primary School Management Committee of Laxmipur Sadar Upazila, has been accused of beating and stabbing him. The incident took place at noon on Friday (May 27) on the school premises. It is alleged that local tea shop owner Zakir Hossain Bablu and his father Belayet Patwari caused the incident. They claim to be the landlords of the school.
According to eyewitnesses and school authorities, a multi-storey building of the school was approved with a grant of Tk 6 lakh from the Department of Primary Education. Authorities recently demolished Bablu’s tea shop on school land to build the building. Earlier, Bablu had asked to remove the shop at different times but he did not do so. Meanwhile, when the shop was demolished, Bablu became angry with Harun, the president of the school. When he went to file the school building on Friday, the zamindar claimed that Bablu and his father came to Belayet and obstructed the work. When they protested, they attacked Aaron. At one point, they hit Aaron with kicks, fists, and sharp weapons. The locals rescued him and admitted him to Sadar Hospital. Aaron has bruises on various parts of his body, including his hands and abdomen.
Meanwhile, when Zakir Hossain Bablu called on his mobile phone to know about the allegation, he said that there was a problem with the installation of electricity poles. At that time, Aaron stabbed and injured him. He has come to Sadar Hospital for treatment.
However, Bablu was admitted to the hospital but no signs of injuries were found on his body. He was admitted to the hospital through a broker.
Harun Aur Rashid, president of the school management committee, said Bablu had a tea shop on the school land for a long time. The government approved a 4-storey building for our school. The construction work of the building started from May 19. Bablu and his father came to stop the filing on Friday. When I protested, they beat and stabbed me.
Officer-in-charge (OC) of Chandraganj Police Station AK Fazlul Haque said, “No one informed me about the incident.” Legal action will be taken if a written complaint is received.
