On 11 April, 2009, due to a family dispute, a young man named Ershad, 22, was beaten by Iran and his two brothers in the EPZ area. Ershad was taken to CMCH by locals where he died while undergoing treatment.
A murder case was filed against Iran and his two brothers at the EPZ police station. Accused Iran and his brothers threatened the witnesses not to testify in the case. But Laila Begum’s husband Kabir Ahmed and son Omar Farooq testified in the Ershad murder case.
Enraged by this, on 1 January, Iran, along with his brothers and companions, attacked Laila Begum in the EPZ police station area.
A case in this regard was filed against Iran and his two brothers at the EPZ police station. Since then, three brothers have been on the run. RAB, with the help of technology, finally tracked Iran’s location and arrested him.
