Shahzadpur newsman killing protester observed Hartal



Lastnewsbd, 4th February, Dhaka: Abdul Hakim Shimul, local correspondent of Bangla daily Samakal, received bullet wounds on Thursday and died on way to Dhaka on Friday. Supporters of a faction of local Awami League and its student front Chhatra League enforced called the hartal. The local press club extended its support to the 6am-12pm shutdown. Allegations have it that Hakim was hit with bullet shot from the gun owned by Shahzadpur municipality mayor and organising secretary of district unit of AL Halimul Haque.

A half-day hartal in protest against the killing of a local journalist in crossfire during a clash between two factions of ruling Awami League was observed in Shahzadpur, Sirajganj, on Saturday. During the hartal hours, no long-route bus left or entered the upazila headquarters while rickshaws and auto-rickshaws went off the streets in the town. Business establishments and educational institutions remained closed during the hartal which locals called spontaneous. Supporters of the two factions of the AL clashed on Thursday as a sequel to assault of a Chhatra League leader allegedly by the younger brother of the mayor. The rivals then attacked the house of the mayor. Journalist Abdul Hakim Shimul was injured with bullet when he went there for gathering news of the incident. Hakim’s widow Nurun Nahar on Friday filed a case accusing 15 people including the mayor and his brother.
