The 20th death anniversary of Shamsur Rahman Kebol, former special correspondent of the daily Janakantha and BBC Bangla Service stringer, was observed in Jessore yesterday.

Local journalist organisations, Jashore Press Club, family members and villagers of the deceased placed floral wreaths on the grave of Shamsur Rahman. Special prayers and milad mahfils were also held on the occasion.

Shamsur Rahman was shot dead by unidentified assailants at his office at Daratana, the heart of the town, on July 16, 2000.

Following the assassination, Selina Akhter Lucky, wife of Shamsur Rahman, filed a case with Kotwali police.

The Criminal Investigation Department submitted the charge sheet accusing 16 people, five of whom were journalists, including Farazi Ajmal Hossain, special correspondent of The Daily Ittefaq.

In 2005, the case was shifted to the Speedy Trial Tribunal, Khulna.

The case came to a halt as the Appellate Division of the Supreme Court issued a stay order on the case nine years ago, in response to a petition by Farazi Ajmal Hossain.
