A housewife of Jhenidah brought an allegation of fraudulence against a self-claimed human rights activist named Mou Chowdhury. Beauty Akter brought the allegation at a press conference at Jhenidah Press Club on Friday.
Beauty Akter, in her written complaint, said she discussed with Mou about the inhuman torture on her by her husband Anwar Hossain, son of Sadayet Hossain of West Rampura in Dhaka. Mou Chowdhury, identifying herself as a lawyer and human rights activist, assured her of legal support and bagged Tk 65 thousand in cash from her. Beauty Akter also alleged that Mou got her (Beauty) sign on a one-hundred Taka non-judicial stamp for filing a case against Anwar Hossain. Beauty said a fake press conference, in this regard, was arranged against the officer in charge of Jhenidah Sadar police station Amdadul Haque Sheikh for his refusal to file the case. She was forced to bring allegation in the press conference where her signature was taken forcibly. Beauty Akter said Mou Chowdhury claimed herself as a journalist and human rights activist. Sometimes she claims herself as a lawyer. She blackmails the well to do people in her trap.
Beauty claimed she at one point came to know that Mou Chowdhury is an activist of the banned Hijbut Touhid as she distributes some periodicals and leaflets on behalf of the militant group. She was handed over to the law enforcers time and again for her unethical and anti-social activities. She has a number of husbands at places, Beauty Akter alleged.
Beauty Akter’s parents Babar Ali and Shahida Begum were present during the press conference.
When this correspondent tried to contact Mou Chowdhury to take her comments, her cell phone was found switched off.
