Seeking the intervention of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina, the family members of deceased journalist Borhan Uddin Muzakkir’s family demanded proper investigation and justice into the killing.

They raised the demand after holding a press conference at 10:30am at Noakhali Press Club on Thursday.

Muzakkir’s father Nurul Huda alias Noab Ali Master, mother Mumtaz Begum, elder brothers Nur Uddin Muhaddis and Fakhruddin Mobassir, elder sisters Jannatul Ferdous, Gulshan Ara, Gulnahar Begum, brother-in-law Abdus Sattar, among others, attended the press conference.

Reading out a written statement at the press conference, Nur Uddin Muhaddis said that their pains of losing their dear brother know no bounds.

“The murder case of journalist couple Sagar-Runi is yet to be disposed of. We do not want the trial of Muzakkir murder case to lengthen like Sagar-Runi murder case. The real culprits behind the murder should be identified and brought to book,” he said.    

Seeking intervention from Sheikh Hasina, also the Awami League chief, for ensuring exemplary punishment to the people involved with the killing, Nur said: “The case has already been transferred to the Police Bureau of Investigation (PBI). We want highest punishment to the killers through proper investigation.”

Breaking down in tears, Muzakkir’s mother said, “I do not know what crime my son committed and why they killed my son. My son did not harm anybody. He always wanted to help people.”

“Muzakkir was involved with different social and volunteer organizations. He has donated blood 26 times. Once I asked how him how he would live donating so much blood. He replied that his blood group is rare and so he donates blood for saving lives,” said Muzakkir’s father.  

Muzakkir was critically wounded in a clash between supporters of Basurhat municipality Mayor Abdul Quader Mirza and former upazila chairman Mizanur Rahman Badal in Companiganj on February 19.

He died while undergoing treatment at the ICU of Dhaka Medical College Hospital (DMCH) around 11pm on February 20.
