Humanity of Bangladesh & RAB's action
Sonia ditched the explanation saying that it was a common story the RAB tells the media after every killing
They killed my husband in front of my eyes. They sprayed two to three rounds of bullets on him. I lost consciousness,” she added.
Sonia’s mother said after killing Wasim, the officials took him down by his legs and hands and sent him to hospital as if he was alive.
“The officials also left two female officials inside the flat who stayed until the evening and threatened us with dire consequence if we opened our mouths.”
Sonia also alleged that the law enforcers had not recovered any arms from the flat. “The officials kept two arms on my bed, took photos and circulated to different media. This is nothing but a drama of the RAB...they killed my husband in a pre-planned way.”
She alleged that her husband was killed as a sequel to a conflict with Alam Super Market owner Alam on extracting toll.
RAB 10 officials arrested Wasim earlier too, Sonia said. When he begged for life one of the officials said: “Alam gave us Tk3, 000,000 for killing him [Wasim]. If you want to survive you have to pay Tk6, 000, 000,” she said quoting Wasim.
On Payment of the amount, RAB released him two days after the arrest.
The other accused, Sangram Chowdhury, 42, who was the manager of Wasim, was staying on the rooftop of the building on the day.
Sensing the presence of law enforcers, he tried to escape by using a pipe but he was shot in the leg and fell down on a tin-shed house.
He again tried to flee the spot but the law enforcers shot him after taking him on the ground floor of the building, said the family members of Wasim who witnessed the incident.
Taslima Akter, a tenant of Wasim’s house, said she had heard two to three bullet shots but would not open the doors and windows out of fear. However, she saw some RAB officials at the building on Monday noon.
