UP member's wrath on Saudi expat's wife

A woman, beaten in public at a village market in the district's Chakoria upazila allegedly by a union parishad (UP) member on Wednesday, is undergoing treatment at a local private hospital.

Sara Khatun, 37, wife of Saudi Arabia expatriate Noor Mohammad, faced the brutality by the UP member when she was taking her sick child to a hospital for treatment around 5:00pm.

The incident occurred at Machhghat station at Charan Dwip Dakkhin under ward No 8 of Chiringa union in Chakoria upazila.

Sara Khatun told the reporters that her husband had a feud with UP member Nazem Uddin.

“As a sequel to the feud, Nazem Uddin beat me in broad daylight. He also tried to molest me,” she said.

Local people rescued her from the attacker and admitted her to a private hospital at Chakoria.

Asked about the incident, UP member Nazem said, “No such incident took place. It is a false allegation and a conspiracy against me.”

Contacted, Bakhtiar Uddin Chowdhury, officer-in-charge of Chakoria Police Station, said nobody lodged any complaint with the police station in this connection.

Police will take legal steps if a complaint is filed, he said.

Tension is prevailing among the local people over the incident.
