Gaibandha Hasan Ali Protest

Protests and human chains have formed in protest of the murder of Hasan Ali, 45, who was the owner of a shoe store in the city

Locals and businessmen in Gaibandha staged protests and human chains on Sunday, protesting the murder of a shoe trader who was found dead in a local Awami League leader’s residence.

Hasan Ali, 45, who was the owner of a shoe store in the city, was found dead at the house of Masud Rana, deputy office secretary of the Gaibandha district Awami League on Saturday, according to police.

The protesters also demanded the removal of Gaibandha Sadar police station Officer-in-Charge (OC) Mahpuzar Rahman.

However, on the other hand, the Gaibandha police superintendent told a press conference that a three-member investigation committee would be formed to investigate the incident.

Earlier on Sunday, a human chain was held in front of Asaduzzaman Market on DB Road in the Gaibandha district town at around 12pm, under the banner of “Amader Gaibandhabashi,” meaning our Gaibandha folk.

Bithi Begum, wife of the deceased, Hasan’s younger son, Hedayetul Islam Shafin, and other leaders of political, socio-cultural, sports organizations, business organizations, journalists and people of different professions took part in the protests.
