Default Shah M.S. Kibria died ...

Al Rally in Habiganj
Kibria critically wounded, 3 killed in grenade attack
70 injured; countrywide hartal tomorrow
Staff Correspondent

Former finance minister Shah AMS Kibria was critically injured along with more than 70 others and three Awami League activists were killed in a grenade attack last night on an AL rally at Boidder Bazar under Sadar upazila in Habiganj.

The dead were identified as Kibria's nephew Shah Manjur, 40, and AL activists Siddique Ali, 35, and Abdur Rahim, 50, of Bongaon village.

Immediately after the attack, severely wounded Kibria and Habiganj District AL General Secretary Abu Jahid were rushed to the capital by an ambulance, AL sources said.

From an impromptu AL central working committee meeting last night, the main opposition called a countrywide dawn-to-dusk hartal for tomorrow protesting the outrage similar to the August 21 carnage last year that had cost 21 lives and left over one hundred injured.

AL will also stage demonstrations in the capital this afternoon.

In instant retaliation to the heinous act, people torched a ruling BNP office and at least 15 other establishments, vandalising some of them, in the northeastern district town of Habiganj, 15km off the spot -- Boidder Bazar Primary School playground.

Additional police forces were called in to quell the tense situation prevailing in the district until filing of this report late last night.

According to local sources, the grenade was hurled near the end of the meeting when Kibria was about to board his car after speaking as the chief guest.

The condition of district AL joint secretary Alamgir was also reported as critical. He along with scores of other wounded AL leaders and workers were admitted to Habiganj Sadar Hospital.

Talking to the United News of Bangladesh Alamgir said the grenade was hurled at Kibria at about 7:05pm.

"It was a close call," as Kibria sustained serious injuries in both of his legs, he said.

Hearing the news, AL's student, youth and volunteer wings -- Bangladesh Chhatra League (BCL), Jubo league and Shechchhasebok League -- took out a joint procession from their office at Bangabandhu Avenue.

The protestors later held a rally on the avenue. Shechchhasebak League General Secretary Pankaj Debnath, Dhaka City AL Joint Secretary Hazi Selim and BCL President Liakot Sikder addressed the rally, with Jubo League Chairman Jahangir Kabir Nanak in the chair.

I feel very bad for this man. I fear now what will be the political situation from now.

It's funny that you are asking this. we have been terrorized by the Islamists and this Bangla Bhai for so long and yet our State Minister refused to say to BBC yesterday whether Bangla Bhai exists or not.

No state minister ever in Bangladesh is good. Every one is trying to kill another.

Maximum politician in Bangladesh (BNP+AL+JP+Jammat+...................ALL party ) is corrupted. So nothing can be done by this idiots .

Nobody gives a damn whether you are sorry or not.

Mr. Kibria was a brilliant student, former UN ESCAP Executive Director and former Finance Minister during Awami League. Bangladesh lost one of its most achieved son and
contributor to its development. We ask you to pray for his soul and for the family to cope with this loss.

Before they all became evil politicians in the present day context, there were some well intentioned people in our society. People who served their nation well at some point in time, if not throughout. SMS Kibria was probably one of them. May his soul rest in peace.
