AL protest in metropolitan cities today
Ruling Awami League announced a two-day protest programme demanding trial of the BNP and Jamaat activists for “killing, terrorism, bombing and arson, and obstructing trial of the war criminals.”
The programmes include protest in the metropolitan cities and district headquarters today, while at thana and upazila headquarters tomorrow, said a party press release.
It said the Awami League Central Working Committee (ALCWC) has urged all
independence and democracy loving people to make the programme a success through greater participation.
“The identified undemocratic forces, in the guise of politics and democracy, sprayed petrol on a taxicab the night before June 27 hartal and set fire to it. As a result, Faruk Hossain and Sumon sustained serious burn injuries,” the release said.
Faruk later succumbed to his injuries on Wednesday night (June 30) at the Dhaka Medical College Hospital (DMCH) while Sumon is still fighting for his life.
The release also mentioned that the “pro-hartal hooligans also seriously injured PWD superintending engineer Abul Kashem in the morning of hartal day while he was going to his office.”
