Fish farm Staff Killing in Satkhira

Body exhumed after two years

Body of a field assistant at a government fish farm, killed allegedly for refusing to pall toll about two years ago, was exhumed on Friday following a court order.
Victim Wahidul Islam Moral, 45, of village Kapsanda in Assassuni upazila worked at a government fish farm at Ellarchar in Sadar upazila. Wahidul's wife Nazira Begum said her husband worked as a field assistant there for about 22 years.
She alleged that two fishery officials demanded toll from her husband. They used to threaten him over cell phone for not responding to their demand, she said.
They called my husband to their office at 2 pm on October 2 in 2008 and strangled him. Later they informed me over cell that Wahidul died due to cardiac arrest," she alleged.
I went to the office and found my husband's body lying on the ground. I also demanded a postmortem of the body seeing marks of torture on the body, Nazira further said.
But the fishery officials managed to take away the body from the hospital without performing postmortem and hurriedly buried him at village Kapsanda on October 3 evening, she said.
Nazira went to file a case with Sadar police station accusing the two fishery officials but police did record the case.
Finding no alternative, she filed a case with the Chief Judicial Magistrate's Court on August 6.
Judge AHM Samsul Arefin of the Chief Judicial Magistrate's Court ordered Sadar police on the same day to take necessary steps in this regard.
After next hearing the Chief Judicial Magistrate on September 15 ordered the District Magistrate to engage an executive magistrate to exhume the body.
