The Daily Star on Tuesday published a story with the headline ‘Rot at the root’ on Page 14 which, quoting Miraz Hossain Munna, it mentioned that Obeid R Nizam was the owner of Kamrangir Char Sporting Club. Nizam however cleared his position in this regard through a rejoinder yesterday.
“The story may have included my name inadvertently and has been misinterpreted,” the statement said.
Quoting a portion of the report, the statement added: “It may be mentioned here that, I have absolutely no connection with Kamrangir Char Sporting Club any longer. I had been the President of the club until May 2016 after which, I had resigned and the committee was dissolved henceforth. The information that has been published has certainly mislead [sic] the readers. I am however, the CEO of the Dhaka Dynamites.”
The portion of the report under question read: “It was not possible to get any comments from officials of Kamrangir Char Sporting Club as Saiful Islam -- who had taken care of the team in the past -- informed that he left the club while secretary Miraz Hossain Munna said that he was not present at the match as he was busy with the BPL Players’ draft. He also informed that Kamrangir Char’s owner is Obeid Nizam, who was the CEO of Dhaka Dynamites.”
