February 11, 2010
State Minister for Home in the former BNP-Jamaat government is held by authorities for questioning in connection with the SAMS Kibria assasination.  


SAMS Kibria went to Habiganj on Wednesday on an organizational tour. His elder brother Shah Shamsul Huda and nephew Shah Manjurul Huda accompanied him. He spoke as the chief guest at the meeting organized by Laskarpur Union unit of AL.

Witnesses said the first grenade was hurled at the end of the rally at Boidder Bazar Primary School playground when SAMS Kibria was about to board his car after speaking at the rally. District Awami League Joint Secretary Alamgir said the grenade was hurled at Kibria at about 7:05pm.   Former chairman of Habiganj Pourashava Shahid Uddin Chowdhury, a witness to the grisly incident, told newsmen later that when leaders were getting down from the dais after the meeting, the first grenade was thrown at them and then the second one came when they ran for cover.

Hit by splinters, the former finance minister and others fell to the ground. SAMS Kibria became unconscious sustaining injuries on different parts of his body with his two legs fatally wounded. He was first rushed to Habiganj Sadar Hospital where resident medical officer Dr Abdullah gave primary treatment to an unconscious Kibria. After consultation with party President Sheikh Hasina, local leaders decided to send him to Dhaka by an ambulance as they failed to manage a helicopter.

The conditions of district Awami League Joint Secretary Alamgir, Organising Secretary Rajan Chowdhury and General Secretary of district Awami Ainjibi Parishad advocate Abdul Ahad Faruq were also reported critical. They along with scores of other wounded Awami League leaders and workers were admitted to Habiganj Sadar Hospital. At Habiganj Sadar Hospital, where 37 people with splinter injuries were rushed in, was overcrowded with the friends and relations of the victims. Relatives alleged of lack of proper treatment and absence of doctors at the hospital.
