Attack on Businessman

Two associates of Ajmeri Osman remanded

A Narayanganj court yesterday placed two associates of Ajmeri Osman, who were arrested early Friday in connection with a case filed for extortion and beating up a businessman, on one-day remand each.

The arrestees are Shahadat Hosen Rupu, 32, and Mokhlesur Rahman, 35.

The court of Senior Judicial Magistrate Aftabuzzaman passed the order, said Inspector Abdul Hai of Narayanganj court police.

The two were arrested from the office of Ajmeri Osman in the town.

Ajmeri is the son of former MP from Narayanganj-5 constituency AKM Nasim Osman and nephew of current MPs Selim Osman (Narayanganj-5) and Shamim Osman (Narayanganj-4).

One Bacchu Miah, a businessman of Amlapara area in the city, on September 5 filed a complaint against Ajmeri and his associates, alleging that they demanded Tk 65,000 from him. As he refused to pay, they assaulted and threatened to kill him, Bacchu alleged.

Following the complaint, law enforcers raided Ajmeri’s office and residence on Allama Iqbal Road and made the arrest. Ajmeri was not present at the time.

Later, Bacchu filed the case against four persons including Ajmeri. Of the accused, two have been arrested, while Ajmeri and one Jewel are on the run, said Sazzad Raman, inspector of special branch of Narayanganj district police.

Police are continuing drives to arrest them, he said.
