BNP standing committee member Moudud Ahmed today alleged that Rajdhani Unnayan Kartripakkha (Rajuk) evicted him illegally as it did not serve him any prior notice.
“Now I am living at my Gulshan apartment where I have to sleep on the floor as my bed needs to be repaired,” Moudud said while addressing journalists during a briefing held at the Supreme Court Bar Association auditorium this noon.
Some rare things from his personal collection and some memorabilia of his two sons who passed away were also damaged or lost during the drive, he said.
The BNP leader also claimed that the Supreme Court verdict that ordered the authorities to mutate the Gulshan land and residence did not include his eviction from the house.
Attending the briefing, Supreme Court Bar Association President Zainul Abedin termed Moudud’s eviction a violation of human rights and said the government has forcefully evicted Moudud from the house which is not a government property.
Also, Rajuk has not even prepared a list of the items moved during the drive, he added.
On June 7, Moudud was evicted from the residence at Gulshan Avenue in Dhaka where he had been staying for more than three decades.
Rajuk conducted the eviction drive at the house and took its control after the former law minister lost a long legal battle over the ownership of the residence worth over Tk 300 crore.
The eviction drive came three days after the Supreme Court verdict that ordered the authorities to mutate the Gulshan land and residence.
