Dhaka, July 16 (IANS) Bengali film legend Suchitra Sen's ancestral home in Bangladesh's Pabna district was Wednesday finally freed from the clutches of the Imam Ghazali Institute after more than a three-decade tussle.

District administration officials led by land officer and executive magistrate Shamim Ara Rini took possession of the one-storeyed house in the town's Gopalpur neighbourhood Wednesday afternoon, bdnews24.com reported.

Authorities had earlier tried but failed to free Suchitra's home due to legal obstacles.

But the full copy of a Supreme Court verdict released July 10 cleared all barriers.

Born in 1931, Rama Dasgupta Krishna is better known as Suchitra Sen. She spent her childhood in the house in Pabna's Hemsagar Lane before her family moved to India during the 1947 Partition.
