Anisur Rahman Swapan

Untitled-125 November Monday 2013 Police arrested former ward councilor, district sports association secretary, renowned businessman, contractor  and  member of district AL committee for firing gunshots and attempt to murder club staffs in the city.

Shakhawat Hossain, Kotwali police station in charge, said Shafikul Alam Gulzar, 55, owner of two posh hotels and bar Athena and Arena, on Sunday late night, entering at Barisal Club, the only posh club in the city, assaulted club staffs.

While the other staffs and officials of the club tried to resist Gulzar, he fired four shots from his revolver and shotgun.

This created panic among the staffs, official, members and guests of the club and they informed police, said Zakaria Manna, office secretary of the club.

Police on early Monday arrested Gulzar from his hotel Athena.

Gulzar claimed that he also a member of the club and fired from his licensed firearms feeling insecure amid the agitated club staffs.

Later Gulzar failed to produce document and proper stock of bullet and cartridges of his licensed fire arms.

Then the written allegation of the club office secretary transformed to an attempt to murder case and Sub Inspector Abu Taher lodged another case under arms and explosive acts for misusing bullet and cartridges.

Gulzar sent to jail at afternoon as accused in those two cases after the metropolitan magistrate Rafikul Islam rejected his bail prayer, police sources said.

Mentionable, Gulzar was 3-time winner former councilor of ward -11 of Barisal City Corporation. He was former treasurer of district BNP and after AL-led 14-party alliance came to power, he joined in Awami League.

Advocate Mahbubul Alam Mehedi, Barisal city Jubo Dal secretary and younger brother of Gulzar, was killed at his house in a RAB raid on October 25, 2005 as first victim of extra judicial killing of RAB in the region.
