2 ex-BCL leaders charged with brandishing firearms

Police on Sunday placed charge sheets before a Dhaka court against two expelled BCL leaders in a case filed over  during a hawker eviction drive in Gulistan area of the capital.


The two charge sheeted accused are BCL Dhaka south city unit general secretary Sabbir Hossain and Wari unit general secretary Ashiqur Rahman.


According to court GRO Mahmudul Hasan, Sub-inspector Akram Hossain of Shahbagh Police Station, also the investigation officer of the case, submitted the charge sheet to Dhaka Chief Metropolitan Magistrate court on Wednesday.


On October 27, 2016, hundreds of hawkers locked into a clash with police after a team of Dhaka South City Corporation (DSCC) officials, led by an executive magistrate, tried to carry out an eviction drive against illegal structures in Gulistan area.


The picture of Sabbir and Ashiqur brandishing guns during the clash appeared in the media the next day.


However, immediately after the incident, the two accused leaders were expelled by the ruling party's student affiliate.
