According to family and lawyer sources, after the death of Siratun Nabi on August 10, his two sons were evicted from their homes by their uncle Kazi Rehan Nabi.

When they tried to return to their ancestral home from their mother, they were not allowed to enter the house anymore. After several attempts, the two children could not enter the house. However, the matter was reported to Dhanmondi police station, but the children's uncle and Supreme Court lawyer Kazi Rehan Nabi did not take the police's command into account.

The incident was reported on a private television channel on October 3 at 12 midnight. Following the report, two High Court judges have operated a bench at midnight and directed Dhanmondi Police Station to immediately take necessary steps so that two minor grandchildren of former attorney general KS Nabi can enter and live in his (KS Nabi) Dhanmondi residence.

Later, the OC of Dhanmondi Police Station brought the two children to their ancestral home.

Asked to talk to the children, Marina Nabi told Daily Bangladesh, "Please let the children be like them. She expressed her gratitude to the journalists for their cooperation in this regard."

Advocate Manzil Morshed, a Supreme Court lawyer, told Daily Bangladesh that not allowing them to enter their ancestral home was a violation of human rights.
