Bangladesh Chhatra Federation formed a human chain and brought out a torch procession at Dhaka University campus Monday demanding justice for recent border killings by Indian Border Security Force (BSF).
The left leaning student body also demanded justice for an attack on a protest rally against border killing at Bera Upazila of Pabna by Bangladesh Chhatra League (BCL) activists.
Around 5:20 pm the activists of Chhatra Federation from central panel, Dhaka University unit, formed a human chain in front of the antiterrorism Raju monument of University of Dhaka
Mosiur Rahman Khan Richard, president of Bangladesh Chhatra Federation, said, "BCL activists of Pabna attacked our activists as they were protesting the killing of school boy Minarul Islam by BSF at Bangladesh-India border in Dinajpur."
He said it is a matter of regret that this incident occurred when Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina was in India to negotiate bilateral issues and solutions.
“However no negotiations about the murders by BSF have been made during the visit which has become a regular phenomenon lately," he added.
"Our government is too weak to condemn the extra-judicial killing of BSF across the Bangladesh-India border but it mourns the death of Elizabeth II,” said the Chhatra Federation president.
Later, a torch procession from the foot of the Raju monument marched toward Shahbagh intersection.
Earlier on September 8, Minarul Islam ,17, a student of Khanpur High School of class six was shot to death by the BSF while Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina was still in India on a four-day visit at the invitation of her Indian counterpart, Narendra Modi.
