Victims still await justice for Udichi bombings
A twin-bomb blast killed 10 people and injured more than hundred at a cultural function of Udichi Shilpigoshthi at the Jessore Town Hall premises on March 6, 1999. Although near 20 years have passed, the victim’s families and survivors are yet to get justice. State Counselor Rafiqul Islam said the case has been on the waiting list for hearing in the High Court. He hoped the trial would resume soon. 70-year old Shamsunnahar, mother of victim Tapan, said: "I want to see the perpetrators face punishment for killing my son." Nur Islam Nahid, a resident of the town’s Bejpara, lost both of his legs in the bomb blast. With gangrene settling in on his wounds due to lack of proper treatment, he has not been able to leave his house in the past two years. Many victims are living in similar turmoil; however, Udichi activists are doubtful of getting any justice whatsoever. Sanmilito Sanskrit Jote General Secretary Sanwar Alam Khan Dulu said delays in the trial of the Udichi bombings case caused the escalation of bombings against innocents across the country. Udichi Shilpigoshthi has chalked out elaborate countrywide programs on Tuesday to pay tribute to the blast victims.   This article was first published on banglatribune.com
