Death of businessman: Henolux MD, wife held
Rab last night arrested Henolux Group Managing Director Nurul Amin and Director Fatema Amin at a flat in the capital's Uttara on charges of instigating a businessman to die by suicide.
Earlier in the day, the brother of Gazi Anisur Rahman, who died yesterday morning of burn injuries, filed a case against the couple with Shahbagh Police Station.
The 50-year-old businessman from Kumarkhali, Kushtia, set himself on fire in front of Jatiya Press Club in the capital Monday afternoon after losing the money he had invested in a company owned by Amin.
He died yesterday morning at Sheikh Hasina National Institute of Burn and Plastic Surgery where he was taken with 90 percent of his body burnt.
The complaint filed by Gazi Nazrul Islam mentioned that the accused took a large amount of money from Anisur but did not return the money, causing him to be utterly frustrated, said Sub-Inspector Golam Hossain of Shahbagh Police Station.
Nazrul said that his brother invested Tk 1.26 crore in the company of the accused.
On May 29, Anisur told a press conference at Jatiya Press Club that Nurul Amin and Fatema Amin got him to give them the money with promises of making him a business partner.
Anisur also said the couple promised that he would get Tk 3 crore with dividends in December 2020. On several occasions, they gave him some money as a share of profit. But at one point, the couple stopped providing the profit shares and started harassing him using their people.
Anisur had formed human chains in Kushtia and Dhaka and held several press conferences. He also filed two cases against the duo with a Kushtia court, said his brother Nazrul, adding the cases are under trail now.
Nazrul said his brother had been depressed over his investment in the company. Anisur was a contractor and had a business of used vehicles. But he was facing a financial crisis.
Anisur, a father of three, was the president of Kushtia Chhatra League in 1993. He was known as an honest student leader in the district.
