The police on Saturday recorded a general diary filed against former adviser to the caretaker government Geeteara Safiya Chowdhury and her husband Nazim Kamran Chowdhury on charge of illegal occupation of a building and threatening its owner.

Farzana Islam, owner of building no-7/A, Road-41, Gulsahan-2, filed the diary with Gulshan police station against them.

In the general diary, she alleged that a group of miscreants numbering 50 to 60 and belonging to Geeteara and her husband entered her building at around 9:30am, broke the second gate of the house and threatened her after entering her office on the ground-floor of the house.

She also mentioned that Geeteara, chairman of Adcomm Ltd, and her husband rented the first, second, and fourth floors of the building in 2002 and signed an agreement in this regard.

As per the agreement, the tenure of the lease ended on September 30, 2007. She asked the tenants to leave the building three months before the end of the tenure as the whole building was needed for her private use, according to the GD.

The tenants did not leave the house despite repeated requests, she alleged, and added that the men under Geeteara and her husband had threatened her and her husband several times.

Later, she sealed the second gate of her building on Thursday for security reasons.

On the other hand, Nazim Kamran Chowdhury, Geeteara's husband, denied the allegations brought against them. 'We did not occupy the building illegally. We are now doing the work of three firms — Adcomm Ltd, Signage and Mega Vision — in the building as per the due process of law.'

'After the expiry of the tenure, we appeared before the court and urged it to allow us to do our companies' work there,' he claimed. 'Following the appeal, the court allowed us to go on working there.'

'The owner of the building, violating the court's order, had earlier snapped the electricity and water lines,' he said. 'The building's owner also sealed the second gate of the building on Thursday night, through which we go out of our offices, without giving us any prior notice.'

Nazim also said that they had filed a general diary with Gulshan police station in this connection on the same night, and some of their employees on Saturday cut the grill of the second gate as they felt 'insecure' inside the building.
