Dhaka, May 4 IANS | 5 months ago

A court in Bangladesh Sunday dismissed a plea by a pro-Jamaat-e-Islami organisation to retain possession of the ancestral Pabna home of legendary Bengali actress Suchitra Sen.

A bench of Appellate Division headed by Supreme Court Justice S.K. Sinha issued the order, bdnews24.com reported.

This means that there is now no legal bar to evicting the Imam Ghazali Institute from the home where the Bengali screen legend spent her childhood, said Additional Attorney General Murad Reza.

"There is no hurdle in setting up an archive of Suchitra Sen and conserve her ancestral home," he said.

The institute moved the Appellate Division against a high court order.

The HC in August 2011 ordered the institute to vacate the house following a petition filed by the NGO Human Rights and Peace for Bangladesh.

The Imam Ghazali Institute also filed a petition to stop the eviction which was rejected by the high court. The institute then filed an appeal against the order to the Appellate Division.

The house of the Bengali screen legend is located at Hem Sagar Lane in Gopalpur Moholla of Pabna city. Born on April 6, 1931, Sen spent her childhood in this house before she moved to Kolkata after marriage.

She died on Jan 17 this year in Kolkata.
