Too deep for tears

It is too deep for tears for Dali Akter, a teenaged girl who has just lost her husband in a market clash in the city.

 She was wailing in front of the morgue of the Dhaka Medical College Hospital. She was waiting to receive the body of her beloved husband Nahid Hasan.

Nahid was brutally killed on Tuesday during the deadly clashes between the students of Dhaka College and the shop owners and employees.

Dalia and Nahid tied knot only six months ago with family consent.

Weeping Dalia said, “ Nahid told me to go to New Market next Friday for Eid shopping. But he went to New Market to fall in the jaws of death.”

Nadim, father of Nahid, was also there along with his family members.

He said, “Only six months ago Nahid married Dalia. They were in deep love.  Later our family members organized their marriage. 

“I have no word to console my daughter- in- law. My son was totally innocent. He did not go to New Market to engage in the clash. He went there for his work as a delivery man. Why did they kill my son?”

While madly crying, Dalia said, if I knew about the clash earlier, I would never have allowed him to go to New Market. Now I have lost everything. I demand punishment of the killers of my innocent husband.

About filing case in connection with the murder, Nadim said, against whom I shall file case? From whom I shall seek justice? With whom I shall share my pain? I have nothing to say…

He said, we are living at a rented house in Rasulpur Dewanbari area of Kamrangirchar in the capital.

Nahid was working as a delivery man at the D-Link Courier Service, located at New Elephant road.

Nahid left home at around 9 am for joining his work. His phone was switched off from Tuesday noon. 

We came to know that he was admitted in Dhaka Medical College Hospital through Facebook, Nadim narrated.

Relatives told that his body was first brought to their Kamrangirchar rented house and then  was buried at Azimpur graveyard.

The body of Nahid bore marks of brutal beating.

There were numerous bruises all over his body. He was brutally beaten to death.

Nahid sustained critical injuries yesterday morning on his way to work from his Kamrangirchar home.

Some people found him lying on the road and took him to DMCH where he died at 9:35pm Tuesday.

After an autopsy at forensic medicine department at DMCH, he was buried at Azimpur graveyard.

Family members suspected that either Dhaka College students or shop employees of Dhaka New Market area beat him to death – suspecting him to be part of the rival group.

None was arrested in connection with the killing. Police are yet to identify where Nahid was attacked and beaten up. 

Shazzadur Rahman, deputy commissioner of Ramna Division Police, said they will start investigation and analyze CCTV camera footage after filing a case in this regard.
