Nazim murder: JnU students threaten strike Sunday
Jagannath University students today threatened to go on an all-out strike on the campus on Sunday demanding the arrest of their fellow Nazim’s killers.
“We will enforce strike on Sunday if the killers are not arrested by 12noon on Saturday,” Mehrab Azad, a spokesperson of the agitating students, told The Daily Star this evening.
Nazimuddin Samad, 26, a law student of Jagannath University, was stabbed and shot in Hrishikesh Das Lane in Old Dhaka last night. The injuries bore similarities to recent blogger killings.
As per the protest programmes, the agitating students will also hold a solidarity rally under the banner of the general students of the university at the Shahbagh intersection in Dhaka on Friday afternoon, he added.
Earlier, JU students demonstrated near their campus and brought out processions that marched on different streets in the adjoining area protesting the murder.
Topon Kumar Saha, officer-in-charge of Dhaka’s Sutrapur Police Station, told The Daily Star agitating students had burned tyres on the road.
No case was filed in this regard up until now and no one has been arrested.
