Another extortion case filed against Zafrullah Chy

Another case has been filed against Zafrullah Chowdhury, trustee of Gonoshasthaya Kendra Trust, on a charge of extortion.

One Hasan Imam filed the case with Ashulia police station on Friday, said Rizaul Haque, officer-in-charge of the police station.

Besides Zafrullah, Gono Bishwabidyalay registrar Delower Hossain, Gonoshasthaya Kendra executive director Saiful Islam Shishir, Awlad Hossain and 30 unnamed people were accused in the case.

Hasan Imam stated that they had demanded Tk 10 million from him.

He also said that the cohorts of Zafrullah had been trying to grab his 52,356 square feet of land at Dhamshona.

The accused demanded Tk 10 million from him as extortion when he visited his land on October 13. “They also vandalised the ownership signboard hoisted on the land.”

Zafrullah came under controversy over the last two weeks after he made a derogatory remark on Army Chief Gen Aziz Ahmed during a talk show at Somoy TV.

A sedition case was filed against Zafrullah in Dhaka following his remarks. An individual named Mohammed Ali from Manikganj filed a case against him with Ashulia PS accusing him of vandalising, land grabbing and extortion last week.

Registrar Delower Hossain, Shishir and three others from Gonoshasthaya Kendra were also named as accused in that case.
