2 RU teachers get 'death threats'

Two Rajshahi University teachers have allegedly got death threats from “Sarbohara Party” over the phone.

Associate Prof M Aminul Islam of sociology department and Associate Prof Mohtasim Billah of philosophy department got the phone calls on Thursday.

Contacted, Aminul Islam said, “I received the call around 6:52pm. The caller introduced himself as Mithun of Sarbohara Party and said I am among those  they are planning to kill.”

Then the caller demanded money, he said, “When I refused to comply, he said, 'Get ready. We are coming. We will abduct you and kill you',” Aminul said.

Mohtasim Billah said he got a phone call minutes later from the same number. “The caller introduced himself as Mohiuddin, a commander of Sarbohara Party.”

They had a similar conversation, he added. “Our men have been following you,” Mohtasim quoted the caller as saying.

The same day, the two teachers filed general diaries with Motihar Police Station.
