The Dhaka Metropolitan Police commissioner Khandaker Golam Faruq said that police would not permit Bangladesh Jamaat-e-Islami to hold a gayebana namaz-e-janaza for war crimes convict Delwar Hossain Sayedee in Dhaka on Wednesday.

The DMP chief on Tuesday made the announcement after policemen clashed with Jamaat activists at Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujib Medical University and Shahbagh crossing in the morning over holding Sayedee’s janaza in Dhaka.

Police dispersed the gathering of Jamaat activists on BSMMU premises through using teargas shells, sound grenades and armored vehicles.

Later, Sayedee’s body was taken to Pirojpur with police protection.

Jamaat leaders announced that they would hold a gayebana janaza for Sayedee at Baitual Mukarram National Mosque on Wednesday.

Briefing media, DMP commissioner Faruq said that the police authorities had decided not to permit Jamaat to hold the gayebana janaza after the mayhem the party activists carried out since Monday night.

Sayedee died at BSMMU in the capital Monday night in jail custody.

The hospital cardiologists declared Sayedee, 86, dead at about 8:40pm, BSMMU director Brigadier General Md Rezaur Rahman told New Age.

‘Sayedee came with myocardial infarction on Sunday night. He suffered another attack this evening,’ Rezaur said.

After Sayedee’s death, Jamaat leaders and activists started gathering at BSMMU and staged protests there.

They demanded that Sayedee’s janaza should be held in the capital.

Police authorities asked Jamaat leaders to hold Sayedee’s janaza in Dhaka on Monday night. But, the party leaders refused the proposal.
