A Juba Dal leader has forcibly occupied a piece of land of a Hindu family in Satirpara area under Narsingdi district.

Locals said on 15 October, 2010, Bappi Kumar Saha of Purba Brahmandi area bought 1.63 decimal land from Sawpan Malik and Joy Malik with Tk15 lakh.

After selling the land Sawpan and Joy went America.

Nazrul Islam, district unit Join Convenor Juba Dal used to live in the house as tenant and ran his aluminum business from there.

After few days, Nazrul claimed that he had bought the land from Sawpan and Joy.

He forced Bappi to leave the house and filed a case against him mentioning that he had been living in the house illegally.

Bappi also filed a case against Nazrul for occupying the land by making fake documents.

Bappi had shown necessary documents in support of his ownership, but Nazrul could not produce any.

After examining the documents and witnesses, the court handed down the verdict in favour of Bappi.

“Despite the court’s verdict handed down in favour of me, I cannot stay in my house as Nazrul has created a panic-stricken situation in the area and his people threaten to kill me.” said Bappi.

He said: “Local arbitrators arranged arbitration over the issue but Nazrul did not attend the meeting.”

Azizur Rahman, 2 No-Councilor of Narsingdi Municipality said:“ The local elites several times called Nazrul to meet up the issue but he did not give any heed.”

Sadar upazila chairman, also BNP vice president Monjur Elahi said that the issue could not be solved as the Nazrul did not response the call of arbitration.

KM Abul Kashem, officer-in-charge of Sadar model police station said no body lodged any complain in this regard.

The OC then said they would take legal actions in this regard after lodging case.

When contacted, Nazrul did not comment over the issue.

Mohsin Hossen, Juba Dal convenor of the district said they would take action against the Nazrul, if found guilty.
