Ex-Bangladesh president's son thrashed after car mishap
Former Bangladesh president HM Ershad's son was beaten up by a mob here after his car rammed into a car and two auto-rickshaws, injuring five people.
"A mob beat up Shad and damaged the car. We recovered the car from the place and took him in our custody," police sub-inspector Firoj Kabir told New Age newspaper.
Shad Ershad, 26, was earlier arrested for allegedly abducting a 14-year-old girl. In March 2000, he filed a lawsuit with the high court challenging the arrest.
HM Ershad was the country's military strongman and longest-serving president 1982-90.
