Police disperse Mayer Dak’s rally marking Human Rights Day
Police today dispersed a rally of Mayer Dak, a platform for family members of the victims of enforced disappearance.
The platform was holding the rally in front of the Jatiya Press Club on the eve of Human Rights Day.
According to our reporter on the spot, the programme was interrupted around 11:00pm by law enforcers.
Shortly after that, a scuffle broke out. The law enforcers, who took position at the venue even before the organisers of the event came there, then dispersed the members of the platform.
Police also snatched away the microphone from Anisa Islam Insha, daughter of a victim of enforced disappearance, while she was speaking at the programme.
Despite the interruption, the members of the platform regrouped in front of the press club and continued their programme.
