However, the situation has changed somewhat after January 10. On that day, one of their own members, named Saiful Islam alias Russell, was tortured and killed in the torture cell for six hours by the members of the Abba army, based on the sharing of money. When the video of the brutal torture went viral on social media, there was widespread discussion. In the face of criticism, the police arrested 12 members of the force, including Bacher Uddin’s son Aftab. Bacher Uddin left the area and went into hiding.
Two reporters of Prothom Alo visited Shubhadhya Union for three days from January 17 and spoke to 15 victims of Abba Bahini’s torture. They described the incident. However, no one agreed to be named. Only a family outside the area has agreed to reveal their identity after being attacked by Abba forces. Because they don’t live in Shubhadhya now.
On the condition of anonymity, a businessman from Shubhadya told Prothom Alo that if the video had not been spread, nothing would have happened to the Abba army in the case of Russell’s murder. Now human chains and processions are being made for them. He also said that Shubhadhya is still under the control of Abba forces. Because Bacher’s brother and Aftab’s uncle Iqbal Hossain Shubhadhya is the chairman of Union Parishad (UP). He is the propitiator of Abba’s forces. No one trusts the police.
