Rajuk asked to explain building safety rule

The High Court (HC) on Thursday (July 28) summoned the chief of Rajdhahi Unnayan Kartipakkha (Rajuk) to explain the building safety rules.

The court asked Rajuk chief Md Nurul Huda and four police personnel to appear before it on August 3 to give their statements in connection with the death of a college student.

The four police officials are Syed Ziauzzaman and Shahabuddin Khalifa, officers-in-charge of Sher-e-Bangla Nagar and Pallabi police stations, and Ajit Roy and Anser Ali, sub-inspectors of Pallabi police station,

The court also asked Khaled Mohammad Jewel Mollah, managing director of Sagufta Group, its director Walid Mohammad Mollah and two contractors Sazzad Hossain and Md Osman Ali before it on the same day.

The two OCs and contactor Osman Ali on Thursday appeared before the bench in compliance with its July 26 order.

The OCs told the court on Thursday that they could not arrest the MD and the director of Sagufta Group as the accused were not present at their respective residences.

The High Court on July 26 ordered the OCs of Sher-e-Bangla Nagar and Pallabi police stations immediate arrest of the two officials.

Advocate Anisul Huq, lawyer of the MD and director, prayed to the court to give the officials more time for their appearance before the court as ‘Khaled is sick’.

Md Osman Ali told the court that contractor Sazzad was designated for maintaining safety of the under-construction building from where a brick fall on the head of college student Habibur Rahman Munna.

Following the statement of Osman Ali, the court summoned Sazzad Hossain.

Munna, 18, an HSC examinee from Tejgaon College, was killed on the spot on July 16 as a brick fell on his head from the 10th floor of an under-construction 15-storey building of a Sagufta project on Panthapath in the capital.

On July 19, the court issued a rule upon the commissioner of Dhaka Metropolitan Police, the two OCs and Sagufta Group to explain within two weeks why the company should not be punished for not taking appropriate safety measures at the construction site.

  1. Sub: A reproach against an Army Lt. Col. and some of colleagues who have been selling out the power of their uniforms providing multifarious assistance to a diehard syndicate responsible for committing abominable crimes that made our lives virtually unlivable.

    Lt Col. Rashidul Alom, Dir. RAB-1, has been insulating his relatives (monir) and a crime committing syndicate involved in land grabbing, lake filling, harboring creating criminals, selling drugs, bribery blackmailing, prostitution, vandalizing, extortion, loan-sharking, encouraging building code violation, oppressing, attacking and ruining a renowned family….led by 3bros (self-proclaimed Matabars Sheeru Shaulldin, Momean. They have satanically persecuted us for 7dissapated long years by keeping us from earning a living, stopping our source of income, garbling our land records, keeping us under watch round the clock, bringing mobs on hire to scare abuse us ruining our social status calling us insane to take away our credibility, not allowing and allowed other to mix with us, throwing full-sized bricks onto our tin-shed roof like hailstorm, bugging our phones and many more….to many departments we went to for assistance to no succor obviously Lt. Col. Rashid hampered its operation deactivating. Even phoning up to have the transgressors released from prison.

    Prior to the happenings Major Rashedul ALom came most frequently to Monir’s building with RAB-1 sticker posted on an extensive vehicle loaded with uniformed men in full gear moving around our house with walkie-talkies in hand and getting inside 2121’s building feasting on the 3rd flr. Just for the sake of showdown.. I distinctly remember marauding/myriad of times doubtful activities in momentum when Lt. Col. Rashid came veiling RAB-1 in font as a cover up to bring in/out luggages/briefcases inside 212’s building or putting within the cars of a black Nissan marked RAB-1 Dhaka Metro Gho 02-3303, Dhaka Metro Go 17-8548 and Dhaka Metro GA 174645 . What’s inside the carriers certainly no smelly undergarments? Times of Major’s visitation invigoration swept fashioning the street urchins taking their shirts off and dangling, dancing dauntingly with ear shattering music played on deck in the street while the syndicate members came out marching to the band.

    Observably Rashid is harboring presently a criminally attitudinized male specimen that happens to be a relative Babon son of Monir & Bilu a crime committing couple. For days he was unseen till suspiciously Rashid’s car D M GA 174645 shoved him inside. Question is who authorized him for misappropriation of government vehicle for his personal gain? A neutral investigation will reveal an exclusive array of Rashid’s role play as an insulator of crime and an ally of injustice.

    PS this is just a tip of the iceberg….
