CUMILLA: Locals formed a human chain in Debidwar municipality on Monday protesting a Tk 27 lakh cheque dishonour case against a rickshaw-puller.

The human chain was formed on the Bakhrabad Gas Field link road at Marichakanda village.

Speakers said Rojina Akhter, wife of expatriate M Billal Hossain of Marichakanda village, took two blank cheques from rickshaw-puller Mohammad Rubel, son of late Abdul Barek of the village, making him guarantor for taking loan from Prime Bank Ltd.

Rubel came to know from a notice received from the court on April 4 that he was accused in a case filed for bounced cheques for Tk 27.40 lakh, brewing resentment among locals.

Although arbitration was convened to settle the issue, Rojina did not turn up. Later, Rubel also filed a fraudulence case against Rojina.
