Victim of brutality by local Awami League (AL) activists on September 20, Principal of Tabalchhari Green Hill College Prof Md Abu Taher is groaning in pain in Khagrachhari Sadar Adhunik Hospital.

As the principal was returning home from the college, AL men allegedly led by Taindong union AL member Ershad Ali attacked him at Taindong Bazar in Matiranga upazila of Khagrachhari district, said locals and police. The attackers severely beat him up, breaking his left leg, and looted cash Tk 50 thousand and a mobile set from him.

Locals took him to nearby Panchhari Upazila Health Complex from where he was transferred to Khagrachhari Sadar Adhunik Hospital as his condition worsened. On September 24, a case was filed with Matiranga police station accusing Ershad Ali, his associates ruling party men Nowab Ali, Abul Kalam Azad, Malon Mia, Monir Ahmed, Jasim Uddin, Hanif Moishan, Akhtar Hossen, Gias Uddin, Pear Ali and Abu Taher but no one was arrested as of yesterday noon.

They (Al cadres) beat me up and injured me seriously to harass my family members including my elder brother Mohammad Sahab Uddin, a councillor of Khagrachhari Hill District Council,” Prof Abu Taher told this correspondent. Asked about the matter, Taindong union Awami League member Ershad Ali admitted that some AL men attacked and injured the principal. "I witnessed the incident but I was not involved in the act.

I did not go there to attack the principal," he said. Matiranga upazila Awami League Secretary Mohammad Tazul Islam, who was also near the scene, said the incident happened due to personal reasons. Matiranga upazila Awami League President Mohammad Shamsul Islam said he asked police to arrest the criminals responsible for the attack.

Officer in charge of Matiranga police station said a case was filed in this connection but no one was arrested so far due to political pressure. He, however, expressed his determination to arrest the culprits.
