Bangladesh: Authorities Free Suchitra Sen's Home

Legendary actress Suchitra Sen's ancestral home in Bangladesh's northwestern Pabna district was today finally freed from the clutches of a pro-Jamaat-e-Islami group, ending over 30 years of dispute.

District Administration officials led by Land Officer and Executive Magistrate Shamim Ara Rini took possession of the one-storied house in the town's Gopalpur neighbourhood, which was till now used by the Imam Ghazali Institute, reported.

The officials locked the two panel doors but the organisation's signboard remains fastened over the main entrance.

Authorities had earlier tried but failed to free Suchitra's home due to legal obstacles.

A bench headed by Supreme Court Justice SK Sinha in July issued an order to evict the house, dismissing a plea by the Jamat-backed Imam Gazzali Institute to retain the possession of the home at Hem Sagar Lane in Pabna city.

She spent her childhood in the house before her family moved to India at the time of the 1947 Partition.

Born in 1931, Rama Dasgupta Krishna was better known as Suchitra Sen.
