Parents received Fahim’s body from police


Madaripur, June 19: Body of Golam Faizullah Fahim, who killed in ‘gunfight’ with police, in connection with an attack on Madaripur Government Nazimuddin University College teacher Ripon Chakravarty, was handed over to his family very secretly.

Fahim’s body was handed over to his father Golam Faruque at Samaddar area on Dhaka-Barisal highway, some 15 kilomters from Madaripur Sadar Hospital, at about 7:30pm.

Earlier, slain Fahim’s father and mother came at Madaripur Sadar Police Station at about 4:00pm. At that time, police did not allow the media to talk to Fahim’s parents.

So, no reliable information was received from Fahim’s parents about where his body would be buried.

Fahim was killed in police firing at village Miarchar of Bahadurpur union under Sadar upazila of the district at about 7:30am on Saturday.

Later, a three-member forensic team of Madaripur Sadar Hospital conducted his postmortem.

It may be mentioned that three miscreants launched an attack on lecturer Ripon Chakravarty at his rented house near the female hostel of Government Nazimuddin University College on Wednesday afternoon.

 Fahim was caught red-handed when he was fleeing away after the attack. Critically injured Ripon Chakravarty was admitted to Sher-e-Bangla Medical College Hospital in Barisal.

On Thursday night, police filed a case against six people including Fahim in connection with the attempt to kill Ripon Chakravarty. Fahim was produced before a court on Friday afternoon and the court placed Fahim on a ten-day remand for interrogation.
