Gaibandha sugarcane lands engulfed in flames

The much talked about Shahebganj sugarcane farmland of Rangpur Sugar Mills Ltd in Gobindaganj upazila of Gaibandha has been destroyed by fire on Saturday afternoon.

Around 33 bighas or around 4.41 hectares of sugarcanes were damaged in the fire.

The fire started around 1:30pm at a field in No.11 block of the farm in the upazila’s Fakirganj area.

The fire had spread in surrounding areas quickly, informed Alamgir Hossain, deputy general manager of the farm.

Soon after the fire broke out, a team of fire fighters from Gobindaganj fire station rushed to the scene.

The firefighters were able to bring the fire under control within 30 minutes, said Abdul Hannan, upazila nirbahi officer of Gobindaganj.

General Manager of the farm, Alamgir said it was not yet confirmed as to how the field caught fire.

“We do not know how the fire was started. We are working to find out what happened,” he said.

Learning about the fire, the factory’s Managing Director Abdul Awal and Gobindaganj police station OC Subrata Kumar Sarker visited the site.

Notably, the Shahebganj farm lands were home to a community of indigenous Santals until a group of workers from the sugar mill attacked them to evict them from the field on November 6.

The Santals along with some local Bangalis resisted the attackers.

A violent clash erupted in the area and at least three Santals died.

The Santals had fired arrows on police forces and local mill workers, which left 25 people including policemen injured.
