  • Print

Activists urged the government to bring the real culprits to book who murdered journalist Manik Shaha. They sent a letter to the Attorney General (AG) recently seeking justice through reinvestigation, identifying the planners, financers, patrons and professional killers involved in the killing.

Copies of the letter was also sent to Prime Minister, Law Minister, Home Minister, President's secretary and registrar of High Court division of the Supreme Court. Manik Shaha, a stringer of BBC Bangla Service and senior reporter of daily New Age and the Dainik Sangbad, was bombed to death at noon on January 15 in 2004 at Chhota Mirzapur, a few yards off Khulna Press Club in Khulna city.

According to the letter, charge sheet filed before the court prepared by Khulna police identified 13 people mostly from the then two rival groups of outlawed Purba Banglar Communist Party, but did not include the planners, financers and patrons of the murder.
