Asok officials face public wrath reaching Chuadanga by helicopter

Eight officials of Ain Sohayota Kendra  (Asok) Foundation have faced public wrath in Chuadanga as they went there by a helicopter for an arbitration.

The incident took place at Andulia Bazar under Jibannagar upazila at about 1:00pm on Saturday.

Local sources said a dispute arose between Abdul Latif, a trader, and his three sons over land property. However, the dispute was resolved at a village arbitration.

Meanwhile, Abdul Latif's son Mostafa Tajwar lodged a written complaint to the Asok Foundation in Dhaka against his father.

Following the complaint, Muhammad Masum Billah, assistant divisional head (Dhaka region) of the Asok, served a notice on Abdul Latif on December 28 asking him to attend an arbitration. 

Asok Foundation divisional head Md Lokman Hossain, his personal assistant Md Sohel Rahman, and Muhammad Masum Billah came under public outrage soon after they got down there from a helicopter, said Andulbaria Union Parishad chairman Sheikh Shaidul Islam Muktar.

After a while, 20 to 25  Asok staff, who went there by a microbus, also faced various questions.

At one stage, some local people were about to beat the Asok officials and employees. However, police stopped the angry people.

However, the Asok staff managed to leave the place--three by helicopter and the rest by the microbus, with the help of police.

Regarding the matter, Jibannagar Police Station officer in-charge Saiful Islam said the Asok officials ought not come by helicopter to arbitrate a local trivial matter.

The situation was about to go beyond control due to using helicopter by Asok officials though the situation was brought under control by police subsequently, he added.
