Sagor-Runi murder: Journos to demo on March 11


Demanding punishment of the killers of journalist couple Sagar Sarowar and Meherun Runi, journalists in Dhaka have threatened to go for a road blockade programme on March 11.

Sohel Haider Chowdhury, general secretary of Dhaka Union of Journalists (DUJ) said, “We will block a road in front of the Jatiya Press Club on March 11 if no action is taken.”

Reporters from different media houses held a protest rally in the capital under the banner of Dhaka Reporters’ Unity.

The journalists also demanded action against the law enforcers for finding the killers even after five years of the killings.

On February 11, 2012, Sagar, a news editor at the private TV channel Maasranga, and his wife Runi, a senior reporter for ATN Bangla, were brutally killed in their West Rajabazar flat in Dhaka.
