JU students allege killers move at largeJU correspondent
Jahangirnagar University students on Wednesday held cultural programmes on campus, demanding justice in the trial of Zubair killing case.
At the programme, leaders of Jahangirnagar against Harassment, a platform of general students, complained that one year had passed but the killers were at large on the campus.
On Tuesday, the students brought out a procession and placed a memorandum to the vice-chancellor Professor Anwar Hossain, pressing their six-point including capital punishment of the killers of Zubair.
On behalf of the students, Afifa Razzak, Jahidul Islam Zinnah, Koly Mahmud, Moutri Bormon, Tomal, Raihan Raji and Sakline-al-Mamun signed on the memo while VC assured them of considering their demand.
Zubair Ahmed, a final year student of the university of English department, was beaten to death by Bangladesh Chattra League activists on the campus on January 9 last year.
The agitating students threatened to go on tougher movement if the university administrations did not take positive initiatives soon.
Seven killers of Zubair Ahmed had been released from jail following a High Court order allowing them only to attend only the final exams.
But they are moving on the campus freely, the students have alleged.
Vice-chancellor of the university said the seven students were only allowed to attend the exams, but if anybody would try to stay on the campus, stern action would be taken against them.
The family of Zubair, meanwhile, has expressed frustration that the killers were out of prison and moving freely.
