Ancestral House of Suchitra Sen: Maintain status quo, SC asks authorities

The Supreme Court yesterday (August 4) directed the authorities concerned to maintain status quo on the possession of the ancestral house of renowned actress Suchitra Sen in Pabna till August 18.

Earlier on July 26, following a writ petition filed by Human Rights and Peace for Bangladesh (HRPB), the High Court directed the government to take over the house from the possession of land grabbers and to take necessary steps to protect and maintain it.This property is reportedly now under the possession of Imam Gazzali Institution, a kindergarten run by the Gazzali Trust.
However, the eight-member bench of the Appellate Division headed by Chief Justice Md Muzammel Hossain yesterday passed the order to maintain status quo after hearing a petition recently filed by Aiyub Hossain Khan, principal of Imam Gazzali Institution, seeking stay on the HC order.
The apex court yesterday also asked the HRPB and Aiyub to attend the hearing on the rule at the HC for disposal.
Contacted, however, HRPB president Manzill Murshid said that he was not aware of the SC order.
