Veteran politician and businessman, husband of industries adviser Geeteara Safiya Choudhury, Nazim Kamran Choudhury has been charged with allegations of physical assault and illegal occupation of a multi-storied building in Dhaka. Farhana Islam, a landlady, filed the criminal case Wednesday with a Dhaka court since police refused to register her complaint. Others accused in the case include close relatives of Geeteara: brother Abu Rushd Tarek, sister-in-law Shamsun Nahar Tarek, son-in-law Adit Bhagat, brother-in-law Mukim Choudhury.
Dhaka correspondent, E-Bangladesh: An E-Bangladesh correspondent in Dhaka has filed a report on the case. However, despite repeated attempts by our correspondent, we do not have any comment from the accused Nazim Kamran Choudhury. E-Bangladesh is trying to get a comment from industries adviser Geeteara Safiya Choudhury.
A landlady in Dhaka Wednesday lodged a criminal case against Nazim Kamran Choudhury, husband of industries adviser Geeteara Safiya Choudhury, and eight others for physically assaulting her and her husband. Metropolitan magistrate Hemayet Uddin heard the case and asked OC, Gulshan police station to register the complaint as a FIR if the allegations are found credible upon investigation.
Farhana Islam, owner of a multi-storied building in Gulshan, alleged Nazim Kamran Choudhury rented her building in Gulshan-2 on condition that he would vacate it by September 30, 2007. The petitioner in a notice asked Nazim, who used the house for business, to vacate the building after the rental agreement expired. However, Nazim continued occupying the building, illegally, without paying rents and other utility bills. At one stage, DESA (Dhaka Electric Supply Authority) disconnected the electric connection to the building acting on a complaint by the landlady.
“Nazim and his cohorts tried to install a generator in my house without my permission, I protested his attempt. On October 23, Nazim and his men physically attacked me and my husband, Mahbubul Islam, with iron rods and Nazim himself tore my sari,
