Update : 11 Feb 2014, 08:03 AM

Dhaka Reporters Unity (DRU) has declared observing a daylong hunger strike on March 31, demanding the judgement of the mysterious killings of journalist couple Sagar Sarowar and Meherun Runi.

DRU President Shahed Chowdhury made the declaration in a remembrance programme held in the capital on the eve of the second death anniversary of the couple, on Tuesday.

He said: “If there is no judgement on the Sagar-Runi murder by March 31 then all journalists in the country will observe a day-long hunger strike.”

“Other steps will also be taken. If there is no judgement for Sagar-Runi murder that means no journalists are safe,” he added.

Sagar’s mother Saleha Munir, Runi’s brother Nowser Roman, DRU’s former president Omor Faruk and journalist leader Shakhwat Hossain Badsha were amongst those who spoke at theremembrance programme.

The couple was found dead at their rented house in the capital’s West Rajabazar in the morning of February 11, 2012.
