A BNP leader in Faridpur claimed that his wife suffered a heart attack during a midnight police search on their home. Renjuara Begum, 40 years old, was the wife of SM Ikram Hossain, rural development affairs secretary of Charyashordi union BNP unit within Nagarkanda upazila.
Ikram alleged that Renjuara, an assistant teacher at Chandhat Government Primary School, was alone in his home when a police team invaded it at 11:30 p.m. The police sought for him and began searching his residence. Renjuara became unwell while observing the activities of the law enforcers. According to him, the police then contacted her neighbor Robin and his wife. Ikram stated that relatives and neighbors transported her in a microbus to the Muksudpur Upazila Health Complex, where doctors pronounced her deceased. Officer-in-Charge (OC) of the Nagarkanda Police Station Miraj Hossain stated that the BNP leader’s home was searched, but nothing was done to cause alarm. He stated that he was unaware of any deaths.
