Arrest warrant issued against Khandaker Mushtaq’s son
A Cumilla court today issued a warrant to arrest Khandaker Ishtiaq Ahmed Babu, son of the key conspirator of the killing of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, in a case lodged over fraud.
Senior Judicial Magistrate Md Golam Mahbub Khan of Cumilla 3rd Cognizance Court issued the warrant, asking Daudkandi Police Station to execute the order.
Khandaker Mushtaq’s relative Khandaker Jabir Ahammed Sarwar filed the case against Khandaker Ishtiaq Ahmed Babu, who is living in Canada, his son Iftekhar Ahmed Shad and caretaker Nizamuddin, last year.
According to the case documents, Khandaker Ishtiaq Ahmed Babu kept all the properties left by his late grandfather Khandaker Kabir Uddin under his control by force, denying all the other heirs of the family. He has a gang of local goons, which is controlled by his caretaker Nizamuddin. Babu allegedly sold many family lands by making forged documents.
“He is depriving us of our rights in the family property. Babu is leading this gang in the Doshpara area sitting in Canada. Nizamuddin is executing all his orders here,” plaintiff Khandaker Jabir Ahammed Sarwar told BSS.
Another heir of the family, Qazi Reha Kabir said Khandaker Ishtiaq Ahmed Babu is enjoying all the family properties, even the ones given under a trust formed in the name of his grandfather Khandaker Kabir Uddin. Babu doesn’t allow anyone of the family to visit the mausoleum of Khandaker Kabir Uddin, she alleged.
Officer in-charge of Daudkandi Police Station Nazrul Islam said the main accused Khandaker Ishtiaq Ahmed Babu is in abroad and they (police) would take necessary legal steps once the copy of the warrant is received.
