Former adviser to the interim government Geeteara Safiya Chowdhury and her husband Nazim Kamran Chowdhury have been accused of threatening and confining the landlady of the building in the city's Gulshan area which houses three of the couple's firms.

Farhana Islam, owner of House 7/A, Road 41, Gulshan 2, made the accusations on Friday in a general diary filed with the Gulshan police.

The complainant alleged she had rented four floors of her building to three firms of the couple. She said although the rent contract expired on September 30, 2007, the couple refused to vacate the floors, which remained occupied by the firms.

Farhana said, 'After the resignation of Geeteara as an adviser on January 8, she and her husband started to threaten her and other tenants of the house.' The complainant, however, did not mention why the couple were behaving in such a violent manner.

For the sake of security of her other tenants, Farhana said, she sealed the gate in the back of the building on Thursday. In retaliation, Nazim Kamran's brother Mokim Chowdhury and Geetiara's brother Abu Rushd along with their security guards locked the front gate, confining the landlady and some of her other tenants to the building for hours.

Farhana sought police help but no police went to the house till 11:00pm.

Later, other people, including newsmen, went to the house and released her and the tenants, breaking the lock on the front gate, the complainant said.
