A court in Bangladesh on Sunday dismissed a plea by a pro-Jamaat-e-Islami organisation to retain possession of the ancestral Pabna home of legendary Bengali actress Suchitra Sen.

A bench of Appellate Division headed by Supreme Court Justice S.K. Sinha issued the order, bdnews24.com reported.

This means that there is now no legal bar to evicting the Imam Ghazali Institute from the home where the Bengali screen legend spent her childhood, said Additional Attorney-General Murad Reza.

“There is no hurdle in setting up an archive of Suchitra Sen and conserve her ancestral home,” he said.

The institute moved the Appellate Division against a High Court order.
