Ivy’s off-springs were locked in CMH room as Khaleda visited her: PM

Dhaka: Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina today said the

BNP government had locked Ivy Rahman’s off-springs in a Combined Military
Hospital (CMH) room in Dhaka for three or four hours, as then Prime Minister
Khaleda Zia went there to see her (on August 24 in 2004).

“The off-springs of Ivy Rahman who were beside her bed (in the CMH), had
been taken to a room and locked inside for three or four hours as then
Prime Minister Khaleda Zia was supposed to see her in the hospital,” she

She said this while presiding over an Executive Committee of National
Economic Council (ECNEC) meeting joining virtually from her official
Ganabhaban residence here.

The Prime Minister said Khaleda Zia went to see Ivy Rahman after locking
her off-springs, Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) Chairman Nazmul Hasan Papan,
MP, his sisters Tania and Mayna in a room, adding that she (Ivy Rahman) was
pronounced dead immediately after her (Khaleda Zia’s) visit.

She added: “The people do not know it. I reveal the matter to let people
know how cruel they were.”

The Premier however called upon the countrymen to pray for eternal peace
of Ivy Rahman and others killed in the gruesome August 21 grenade attack.

She said, “On this day, today (Ivy Rahman succumbed to her injuries on
August 24 in 2004 in CMH), I remember the most about Ivy Chachi (aunt).”

Sheikh Hasina, also President of the ruling Awami League, said then BNP-
Jamaat alliance government even wanted to vanish the bodies of her party’s
leaders and activists killed in the heinous grenade attack, as they did not
want to handover the bodies to their relatives.

But, the BNP government was forced to handover the bodies to relatives due
to constant vigil of the AL leaders and activists, she said.

She added that the physicians of BNP even did not give any treatments to
the people who suffered splinter injuries in the grenade attack.

The Prime Minister said she had arranged treatments for the injured people
at home and abroad.

The Awami League President said that Bangabandhu Memorial Trust had
arranged treatment for the injured people.

Sheikh Hasina said the Trust is still giving assistance to the injured
people and relatives of the deceased ones to continue their livelihoods and
bearing expenses of their children’s study.

She added that many of the injured people have already died while many
others have become crippled and many are still leading miserable lives with
splinter injuries.

Twenty-two Awami League leaders and activists including the then Women
Affairs Secretary of AL and wife of late President Zillur Rahman were killed
and over 500 others injured and many of them became crippled for life in the
August 21,2004 attack.

By the grace of the Almighty Allah, then opposition leader and incumbent
Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina and other front ranking AL leaders narrowly
escaped the carnage.
