Cumilla, May 21 (UNB) – Locals formed a human chain in Debidwar municipality on Monday protesting a Tk 27 lakh cheque dishonour case against a rickshaw-puller.
The human chain was formed on the Bakhrabad Gas Field link road at Marichakanda village around 11am.
Marichakanda ward Awami League president Momin Uddin Bhuiyan and local Jubo League leader Nasim, among others, joined the programme.
Speakers said Rojina Akhter, wife of expatriate M Billal Hossain of Marichakanda village, took two blank cheques from rickshaw-puller Mohammad Rubel, son of late Abdul Barek of the village, making him guarantor for taking loan from Prime Bank Ltd.
Rubel came to know from a notice received from the court on April 4 that he was accused in a case filed for bounced cheques for Tk 27.40 lakh, brewing resentment among locals.
Although arbitration was convened to settle the issue, Rojina did not turn up. Later, Rubel also filed a fraudulence case against Rojina.
Local Rafiqul Islam said Rubel first declined to give cheques to Rojina. Later, he signed the cheques in front of me. “I heard after several days that Rojina filed a case against Rubel.”
