Allegation of Jubo League attack on independent MP in Bogra

It has been alleged that Jubo League leaders and activists attacked local Member of Parliament (MP) Rezaul Karim Bablu while he was going to attend a law and order committee meeting in Bogra’s Shajahanpur Upazila Parishad.

The attack took place outside the hall of the Upazila Parishad on Wednesday morning during the law and order committee meeting. It has been alleged that despite the attack on the MP, the meeting of the law and order committee continued as usual.

Meanwhile, Jubo League leaders and activists went to protect the MP during the attack, his personal assistant (PS). Salim beat Reza with a rod and injured him. Reza was admitted to Bogra Shaheed Ziaur Rahman Medical College Hospital with head injuries.

Local journalists said that there was a meeting of the law and order committee of the Upazila Parishad on Wednesday. The meeting started in the hall adjacent to the office of the Upazila Nirbahi Officer (UNO) around 10:30 am. About 15 minutes after the start of the meeting, when a ruckus started outside, upazila chairman Sohrab Hossain Channu and many others came out to see MP Bablu and his personal assistant fighting with Jubo League leaders and activists.

In this regard, MP Bablu said that due to the Corona situation, he could not attend any meeting for a long time. He went to Upazila Parishad to attend the law and order committee meeting on Wednesday. But the meeting started before he arrived. Then he was waiting in front of his office door to talk to UNO Asif Ahmed. At that time some people including personal assistant Reza and driver were with him. Upazila Jubo League Acting General Secretary Badsha Alamgir along with 4/5 leaders of Jubo League suddenly came in front of the door of UNO and attacked him at around 10 am.

He said, ‘When the people who were with me tried to save me, Jubo League leader Badsha Alamgir hit my PS on the head with a rod. His head exploded. At one point upazila chairman Sohrab Hossain Channu came and pushed me. On receiving the information, the police rescued us and took us to the police station and sent the injured Salim Reza to the hospital. I am a member of parliament. I was attacked in the Upazila Parishad, but still Mr. UNO did not come to see me, nor did he look for me.’

When asked about the complaint, Shajahanpur Upazila Parishad Chairman Awami League leader Sohrab Hossain Channu said, ‘MP has nothing to do with me. There has been a ruckus about the MP’s PS having trouble with the general secretary of the Upazila Jubo League.’

At one stage of the incident, the MP took the licensed (marked) weapon.

However, Acting General Secretary of Shajahanpur Upazila Jubo League Badsha Alamgir denied the allegations of attack on MP Bablu or his PS. He said that for the implementation of food in exchange for work (Kabikha) scheme, MP Bablu is his PS. He took 95 thousand taka from me 4 years ago through Reza. But since then Bablu did not come to the area and did not give the project.

He also said that after 4 years suddenly after seeing the MP and his PS in upazila parishad on Wednesday morning, I want to know the reason for not giving my project. Enraged by this, the MP started abusing me in unspeakable language. At one point, when Upazila Chairman Sohrab Hossain Channu came there, the MP took out the revolver in his waist and threatened to shoot. When the Jubo League leaders and activists who were with him got excited, he hid the pistol. He then hit my neck with the rod.

MP Bablu said, “I took out my licensed pistol in self-defence.”

Shajahanpur Police Station Officer-in-Charge (OC) Abdullah Al Mamun said that no one has filed any complaint in the incident yet. Complaints will be investigated and action will be taken.

Shajahanpur Upazila Nirbahi Officer Asif Ahmed called him to get his statement on this matter, but his statement was not known as the phone was not received.
