Neighbor cousin Farhad Hossain Shah (53) and his son Jamiul Alim Jiban (21) were seriously injured after being admitted to the ICU of Rajshahi Medical College Hospital after they were beaten up by the Naldanga Upazila Parishad Chairman of Natore, Awami League leader Asaduzzaman Asad, for spreading false propaganda on Facebook. Jahanara Begum, the wife of Farhad Hossain Shah, who was injured in the incident, filed a case in the name of upazila chairman Asad, his two younger brothers and four or five unidentified people at Naldanga police station for beating her husband and children. The beating happened on Monday night at Charmatha intersection near Kazipur Amtali market in Ramsha upazila.
Injured Farhad Hossain Shah is the son of deceased Faiz Uddin Shah of that village and brother of former general secretary of Naldanga Upazila Awami League SM Feroze. Deceased Jamiul Alim Jiban Naldanga Shaheed Nazmul Haque Degree College BA final year student. Jamiul Alim, who got married a year and a half ago, has a three-month-old son.
According to the police and local sources, the theft of microphone parts took place after the Maghrib prayer at the Jama Masjid of Kazipur Amtali Bazar in Ramsha on Saturday. Based on this incident, Naldanga Upazila Chairman Asduzzaman Asad suspected some people of that village to be involved in the theft. The chairman held an arbitration meeting and interrogated the suspects. At one point the upazila chairman found his neighbor cousin Jamiul Alim Jiban guilty. Later, Jamiul Alim Jeeban claimed his innocence and posted a status on Facebook aimed at Upazila Parishad Chairman Asad. Upazila Chairman Asad became angry.
When Jamiul Alim went to Charmatha intersection near Jeevan Amtali Bazaar at around 7 pm last Monday, his people including Upazila Chairman Asad called him. At one point, a discussion started with him about his Facebook status and Chairman Asad, his younger brothers Faisal and Alim Al Raji and their men started beating Jeeban with kill punches. When his father Farhad Hossain came forward to release his son after getting the news, the chairman started beating him too.
The assailants hit them with rods, bamboo sticks and sharp knives, causing serious injuries. Later, local people along with their relatives rescued them and first admitted them to Nato Modern Sadar Hospital. As the condition in the hospital deteriorated, they were shifted to Rajshahi Medical College Hospital in the night and the injured Jamiul Alim Jiban was kept in the ICU of the Medical College.
SM Fakruddin Futu, the younger brother of the injured Farhad Hossain, said that Upazila Chairman Asad unjustly beat his brother and nephew.
His other brother, former general secretary of Naldanga Upazila Awami League SM Feroz said, if Jamiul had committed any crime, the upazila chairman could have informed me. But even as a government man, he should not have done the dirty and uncalled for thing he did. The upazila chairman brutally beat three brothers and other people to satisfy his anger over a minor incident. Due to which newly married young Jamiul Alim died. His wife became a widow with a three-month-old child. I demand the immediate arrest and prosecution of the chairman.
Shafiqul Islam, OC of Naldanga police station, said that Farhad Hossain Shah’s wife Jahanara Begum has filed a case of assault against upazila chairman Asaduzzaman Asad, his two younger brothers Faisal and Alim Al Raji and several others on Tuesday afternoon. Now this case will be considered as a murder case.
Naldanga Upazila Parishad Chairman Awami League leader Md. Asaduzzaman Asad told reporters on Tuesday afternoon that Jiban and his father are drug addicts. Jeevan came on Facebook Live and exposed many lies against him. When he was called and questioned about these issues, the father of life Farhad Hossain hit the chairman from behind with a bamboo. At such times it is natural to strike back to defend oneself. However, after the news of his death came at 8 pm on Tuesday, his phone was switched off despite repeated calls.
