Saju Mia, Shibganj (Bogra) Representative:

Five people, including three women, were beaten and injured in an attack on a helpless family in Panate Para village of Shibganj Sadar Union in Bogra’s Shibganj Sadar Union. A case has been filed at Shibganj police station over the incident.

According to the case and local sources, Thanda Mia, son of Bulu Mia, Anarul Islam, son of Shahjahan Ali, and his sister Nasima Begum have been involved in the drug business for a long time. As they are influential in the area, the helpless villagers of the area do not dare to open their mouths and protest. Even after the current government is fighting against drugs, they are continuing their drug business by showing their thumbs up to that decision.

As the current law and order situation tightened, they changed their business strategy and illegally pressured to keep a large quantity of Phensidyl in the house of Maghlu Mia next door. Moglu and his family did not agree and asked them to leave with Phensidyl. On the afternoon of April 18, Thanda Mia, Anarul, and Nasima were led by their collaborators Dulu Mia, Shahjahan Islam, Amjad Hossain, Lemon Prang, Anishar Rahman, Abdul Mannan, Lucky Begum, Amena Begum, Yasin Ali, Naeem, Sohan, Shakil. Anonymous 8/10 people started beating Bedharak with iron rods, Ram Da, Hasua, sticks, and shots.

Maglu Mia, Hossain Ali, Shahena Begum, Dulali Begum, and Sharmin sustained serious injuries. Among them, Maghlu Mia and Hossain Ali were sent to Shaheed Ziaur Rahman Medical College Hospital for better treatment as their condition was critical. While the condition of Maghlu Mia and Hossain Ali was deteriorating, they were sent to a medical center in Dhaka for better treatment. Their condition is now alarming, at the crossroads of birth and death. On behalf of the injured, Rostam Ali filed a case with Shibganj Police Station against 8/10 unidentified persons including 11 others.
