Jhinaidah district Chhatrashibir leader shot to dead; Acting Secretary General condemns; demands judicial investigation
Tuesday, 19th July, 2016
Acting Secretary General of Bangladesh Jamaat-e-Islami, Dr. Shafiqur Rahman has issued the following statement on 19th July, 2016 protesting and condemning the brutal murder of Islami Chhatrashibir’s Jhinaidah district leader Saiful Islam by the law enforcers.

“Police has shot Islami Chhatrashibir’s Jhinaidah district leader Saiful Islam to dead unlawfully and violated the law, constitution and human rights severely. 

Police had arrested Chhatrashibir leader Saiful Islam from his residence on last 3rd July and since then repeatedly denied his arrest. Finally they killed him brutally by staging a drama of so called gunfight. The government has turned Jhinaidah district into a valley of death by detaining and murdering the student and the talented youth one after one. The entire district has become full of sigh and cry of the parents and family members, as many of them have lost their dear ones in recent times in a similar way. Even after that the government is not stopping their ill practices. When these malpractices of extra judicial killing will come to an end? The brutality and inhumanity is crossing all the limits.

I am urging the concerned authorities to free all the leaders and activists of Jhinaidah district Islami Chhatrashibir who are still in custody. I am also calling upon the authority to conduct a judicial investigation into these ‘shot to dead’ incidents of the policemen and to ensure exemplary punishment of responsible personnel.”
