Jewel Chowdhury, Habiganj: Mizanur Rahman Orpe Pagla Mizan is a well known face of Habiganj. Whose job is to rescue the rotten half-dead body and take it to the morgue. That work is usually not wanted by anyone except Pagla Mizan.
As soon as he entered the Sadar Hospital, he met Pagla Mizan. Sitting on the floor in front of the emergency department from morning to night. Police informed Mizan as soon as they found the body. Mizan also called the police and ran away without delay. Mizan’s home is in Anantapur area. His father’s name was Sultan Khan.
He shared his life story with the correspondent on Monday. He did not study much. Unable to find work anywhere, at one time he used to drag patients to the Sadar Hospital with slips. One day, when a person called him a pimp, he came back from that path and chose to retrieve corpses as his profession for a living. However, in this case, there is no demand. He is satisfied with what he pays as a reward.
He is survived by his wife and two children. So far, he has recovered more than two hundred rotten, half-decomposed and train-cut bodies and taken them to the morgue. His only claim is that he gets a permanent job in the hospital. When he gets a job, he does not have to stay half starved with his wife and children. During the conversation, he lamented that the day the body was found, the fire was burning in his stove. And on the day when the body is not found, he has to fast with his family.
