Charge Sheet against Minu

The charge sheet against Rajshahi City Corporation Mayor and former BNP lawmaker Mizanur Rahman Minu in an extortion case was placed before Rajshahi Chief Metropolitan Magistrate court yesterday for accepting.

 

The CMM court, however, fixed June 6 for hearing on the charge sheet acceptance.

 

Sub-Inspector Abdur Rahman Sarkar of Rajpara Police Station pressed the charges against total 11 persons including Minu on May 16.

 

But, the case documents were shifted to a judge court following two miss cases regarding ad interim bail prayer of two accused persons in the case.

 

Minu, however, was freed on an anticipatory bail from the high court in connection with the case.

 

Other accused persons in the case include -- district BNP vice president Nazrul Huda, former city BNP general secretary Shafikul Haque Milon, BNP adherents Tahajuddin, Mainul Islam, Ranju, Ashraf, Shamsul, Sentu and Abdullah Al Mamun.

 

The plaintiff Shamsul Alam Khan, a governing body member of Evergreen Model College alleged in complaint, Minu called him and the college principal Abu Yusuf Selim at his office in 2006.

 

Minu requested to include his men – Nazrul and Milon in the college's governing body and otherwise, he threatened with dire consequences.

 

Again on July 4, 2006, Nazrul, Milon and Sentu went to the college and demanded Tk 1 lakh toll for not including them.

 

However, they forcibly took away 10 pairs of school benches worth Tk 13,000.

 

Later on March 29 this year, the accused persons, following the mayor's direction, waylaid Khan at Baharampur Bypass intersection while he was coming out of the college and assaulted him.

 

They demanded Tk 4 lakh in toll from Khan and threatened him with death.
