In the letter, Nur apprehended that he might be killed any time.
Addressing the people of Narayan-ganj, the letter stated: I never want-ed that seven people will be killed. They [Nur did not mention who] did it against my will.

Delay in xing project site jeopardises $5m in World Bank fundsn Abu Bakar SiddiqueThe governments failure to select a site for a proposed wildlife centre in the last three years has prompted the World Bank to consider whether it should withdraw around $5m worth of funds from a $36m project.
Former forest minister Hasan Mahmud reportedly wanted to set up the wildlife centre near his hometown
in Chittagongs Rangunia; the forest o cials wanted the location to be Dha-kas Botanical Garden; while the World Bank demanded that the centre be set up in Gazipurs Sal forest as per the pro-ject outline.
After the disagreements had con-tinued for three years running, a vis-iting World Bank mission reportedly decided to pull the $5m earmarked for the wildlife centre, as the government
could not utilise the money timely. However, Forest Minister Anwar
Hussain Manju told the Dhaka Tribune that discussion was going on to change the mind of the global lender as there was still two years left in the project deadline. The di erence of opinion on selecting the location had been an im-pediment to the project, the minister said, adding that the World Bank was

Flawed Acsu probe makes evidence lightICCs anti-graft o cials persuaded Dhaka Gladiators coach to playn Minhaz Uddin KhanThe three-member Bangladesh Pre-mier League tribunal headed by Justice Khademul Islam Chowdhury has found that ICCs Anti-Corruption and Security Unit (Acsu) maintained no guidelines or protocols while investigating the match- and spot- xing allegations that ravaged the second edition of Bangla-desh Premier League last year.
According to the tribunals complete judgement report, this was the main reason why the evidence placed by Acsu against the charged individuals lost its weight and was confusing to a certain extent.
The report pointed out that Ian Pont, the coach of Dhaka Gladiators was the rst individual to inform Acsu of the
corrupted games in last years BPL. Ian informed Acsu o cial Peter OShea of being approached by Dhaka Gladiators managing director Shihab Chowdhury to x the match against Chittagong Kings on February 2, 2013. He also in-formed Peter of his intention to leave Bangladesh right away. But the Acsu o cial persuaded Ian to play according to Shihabs plans and told him that the xed match should take place.
According to the plan, Dhaka Glad-iators regular captain Mashrafe Mor-taza should be rested and Mohammad Ashraful would captain in his place. Plan of who else might be interested in getting involved with xing was raised and this brought in the name of English batsman Owais Shah. With Ian, Shihab shared the details of the plan regarding who would do what and what would they do if they batted rst or bowled rst in the game against Chittagong. Ian was informed of the inclusion of Dhaka team pacer Mahbubul Alam in the playing XI along with the inclusion of leg spinner Kaushal Lokurachchi in-stead of another player.

They hate Neymar!n Raihan Mahmood from Sao Paulo
It may appear unbelieva-ble to millions of football fans across the globe but it is true that there are many Brazilians who are not admirers of the Se-lecao and hate Neymar.
While talking with me at the grand ave-nue of Paulista, the hub of all Brazilian festivals, Erika and Kate Suarez assured that they belong to a di erent species.
What was interesting was that both of them could speak English, a rare phenomenon in Brazil, and they ap-proached me upon hearing that I could speak English. Little did they know that they were speaking to a reporter who had arrived from Bangladesh to cover the Fifa World Cup. When the identi-ty was revealed to them, they did not panic, instead they wanted to transmit their feelings.
Erika was white and Kate was black, please do not take it as a subject of rac-ism as it is just to describe the situa-tion. The Brazilian government used all the policies to stop the anti-World Cup demonstration of the people and we believe that the World Cup is be-ing hosted with the peoples money. I do not believe that Brazil will win the World Cup as team spirit is not very high, said Erika.
When asked whether the anti-World Cup spirit is higher than the pro-World Cup sentiment, Kate answered diplo-matically. The anti-World Cup feelings are not very low. I believe millions of Brazilians have already demonstrated it. I can gather a lot of people around
