Ex-BNP lawmaker Mozammel sued for extortion

A case was filed against former BNP lawmaker Mozammel Haque and nine of his acolytes on extortion and looting charges in Natore.

Awami League leader Mosharraf Hossain of Khakradaha village in Gurudaspur upazila filed the case with a Natore cognizance court on Thursday.

The complainant in his case alleged that Mozammel, an MP at the eighth parliament from Gurudaspur-Boraigram constituency, demanded Tk 8 lakh in toll from his brother Ahad Ali for doing business in his area, following which Ahad paid him Tk 1 lakh.

As Ahad failed to pay the rest, Mozammel's men looted bricks worth over TK 3.97 lakh from his brick kiln at different times since March 2003.

Others accused in the case are Shariful Azam, Bablu Shah, Chantu, Mantu, Khokon, Swadhin, Swapan, Shariful Islam and Masud.
