Sonagazi Islamia Senior Fazil Madrasa principal Siraj-ud-Daula`s several illicit activities have got exposed after the brutal murder of Alim examinee of the same madrasa Nusrat Jahan Rafi. There have been several complaints of frauds, money embezzlements including multiple allegations of sexual harassment against him. And to cover his illicit activities, Siraj used madrasa’s funds worth millions.
Special investigation revealed that Siraj always maintained a group of local administration, political leaders and influential students of the institution. He needed huge amount of money to keep them satisfied. And he got the full amount of money from the madrasa fund. Being the principal, Siraj himself controlled the madrasa funds. It was known that if anyone sought accountability of the madrasa funds, he used to give various types of threats.
Locals said, there is a three-storied market in front of Sonagazi Islamia Senior Fazil Madrasa. Besides, many people and organizations also donate huge amount of money to the madrasa funds. A huge amount of money also comes from religious programs like waz-mahfils. Siraj used to keep all such money under his possession and used to spend the money from the funds on his own without any accountability.
After the arrest of Siraj in a sexual harassment case filed by Nusrat`s mother, a group of students protested for his release. Several sources said that Siraj had been giving money to this group for a long time.
