ControversyEdit

Khan's son, Bakhtiar Alam Rony, fired his licensed gun in a traffic jam in an incident in April 2015. His firing killed Abdul Hakim, a rickshaw puller, and Yakub Ali, an auto-rickshaw driver. He was interrogated by Detective Branch over the murders while Pinu denied any involvement of her son.[3][4] He was charged with murder and the case became known as Eskaton Double Murder.[5][6][7][8] On 30 January 2019, a Dhaka courted sentenced him to life imprisonment.[9]
