Eric Ershad alleges torture by GM Quader
Eric Ershad, son of Late Jatiya Party (JaPa) founder HM Ershad, has accused his uncle GM Quader of trying to bar him from entering his own house if he steps out of it once.
“I cannot go out of my house due to fear of my uncle (GM Quader). I am afraid that I may not be allowed to enter my house again once I go out, so I have called my mother to stay with me,” he alleged.
Eric made the statement at a press conference held at his President Park residence in Baridhara on Friday.
Earlier on November 18, Eric Ershad filed a general diary (GD) with the Gulshan police station seeking permission to let his mother Bidisha stay with him.
In the GD, Eric said his uncle and his associates tortured him physically and mentally soon after his father died. So, he has brought his mother Bidisha, to his President's Park residence on November 14.
“I have asked my mother to stay with me. My father before his death, told me not to make any suffering for my mother... but my uncle GM Quader is saying that my mother came to this house by force, which is baseless,” he told the press conference.
Eric was tortured, Bidisha alleged
Meanwhile, Eric’s mother Bidisha has alleged that GM Quader tortured Eric because of his greed for the property.
“His uncle does not have any love for Eric. All his attention is on Eric's property. He (Quader) had tortured Eric in different ways for property. Even, a child with special needs (Eric) has not been provided with proper food,” she alleged.
Bidisha also brought allegation of assaulting her son Eric by a driver of the house.
“We are feeling insecure here. We cannot go out because of fear as there is no assurance on whether we can come back to this house again,” she said.
“I will not leave the right to have my son. I will stay with him,” said Bidisha.
