Hundreds of nurses from Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujib Medical University (BSMMU) formed a human chain in Dhaka yesterday, demanding justice for Shahinoor Akter Tania, who was gang-raped and murdered on May 6.

The nurses formed the human chain under the banner “Nurses of BSMMU,” in Shahbagh, and demanded exemplary punishment for the perpetrators.

Santana Rani Das, nursing superintendent of BSMMU, said: “It is pitiful that one gets raped on a bus while returning home. We demand the cancellation of Swarnalata bus’s registration. No other women should have to face such a situation.”

A few students of Dhaka College also formed a human chain in front of the National Museum, protesting the incident.

Hasibul Hossain, a student of political science in Dhaka College, said: “Irregularities have now become a common matter, so protest is the only solution.

“We want immediate trial and justice for all the recent rape incidents — including Tania’s. The government can deploy RAB [Rapid Action Battalion] to apprehend criminals just as they did during the anti-narcotics drive.”

On Sunday, bus driver Nuruzzaman, one of the accused in Tania’s murder case, gave his confessional statement before a Kishoreganj court. 

On May 6, 24-year-old Tania, a nurse at Ibne Sina Hospital’s Kalyanpur branch in Dhaka, was raped and killed on her way home to Kishoreganj.
