Former CA member Sardul Miya Haque was found dead on Tuesday morning when family members discovered his body near the residential quarter of his own petrol pump in Bisanpur chok. Haque’s throat had been slit and he had sustained injuries to his stomach. The assailants have not been identified yet.

The 55-year-old had returned to the room on Monday night after attending a wedding. When he didn’t return home even in the morning the family members set out to search for him and found his body in the room in the premises of the petrol pump.

A native of Bishanpur, Kalyanpur, Haque was born in 1958 in an ordinary family. The eldest among five sons, he was responsible to look after his family. Hence he went to Gulf countries twice for foreign employment and also spent a few years working in India.

Later, he opened his own brick factory in his village. He was elected the ward secretary in 1997 and was also the president of Tarun dal, the youth wing of NC in his village.

He was elected to the Constituent Assembly as an independent candidate from the constituency number 5 of Saptari district in 2008. When it came to issues related to minorities and Muslims, he was always vocal and actively fought for their rights. After the CA was dissolved he returned to his village and was involved in business and social work. He is survived by his wife, two sons and three daughters.

22 May, Kantipur
