Shaon, Mazhar sued for 'killing Humayun Ahmed'Our Correspondent . Chittagong
A lawyer in Chittagong on Wednesday filed a case against Meher Afroz Shaon, the second wife of Humayun Ahmed, and Mazharul Islam, publisher of Annyaprakash Publications Ltd, accusing them of killing the writer in a premeditated manner.
Nazrul Islam, a fan of writer Humayun Ahmed, filed the case with the court of Chittagong’s chief metropolitan magistrate ABM Nizamul Haque.
The court ordered Chittagong’s zone assistant superintendent of police of the Criminal Investigation
Department to carry out a probe into the case.
The plaintiff’s counsel, Qumrul Islam Sajjad, told New Age that the two killed Humayun Ahmed
in a planned way to grab the writer’s cash and property.
‘We are going to submit additional prayer regarding the case in a couple days,’ added Qumrul.
The news editor of daily Amar Desh, news editor of daily Azadi and writer Abdul Hye Shikder were named as witnesses in the case.
In the case statement, the plaintiff claimed that Shaon and Mazharul committed the murder in complicity with each other.
The case statement also said that after the operation Humayun Ahmed was admitted to Jamaica Hospital instead of Bellevue Hospital when he fell off the chair in his house on July 17 and sustained injuries on the stitched and operated part. Shaon and Mazhar also, when talking to on-duty physician Dr Miller, concealed the fact that Humayun fell off the chair.
On July 12, Shaon and Mazhar hosted a party at Humayun’s rented house where the writer was made to eat meat and take drinks. Besides, both Shaon and Mazhar went missing for two hours from the hospital when
Humayun’s operation was going on.
On the other hand Shaon played a game at the expense of the treatment of the writer, said Qumrul. She publicized in the media that the operation was delayed due to lack of money, but when Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina wanted to bear the entire expense of Humayun’s treatment, Shaon declined the offer. Later Hasina forced a cheque of $10,000 into the writer’s hand.
Shaon later told the media that Humayun’s treatment could not be carried on in Sloan Memorial Cancer Hospital due to lack of money, though the experts of the hospital assured her that that the writer would 100 recover per cent, said Qumrul.
Shaon and Mazhar also tried to conceal the matter of giving life support to the writer on July 17 and 18, he added.
Considering the above facts, the complainant felt that Shaon and Mazhar had intentionally delayed and neglected the treatment of Humayun and killed him in a bid to misappropriate his huge amount of money and property.
Humayun Ahmed died in a New York hospital on July 19 while undergoing treatment for colon cancer. He was buried in Nuhash Palli in Gazipur.
