The families of the two joint conveners of the Student Rights Council, an organization of former VP of Daksur Nurul Haque Nur, are not looking for their families. They are Shakil-uz-Zaman and Mina Al Amin. The two have been ‘missing’ since Friday afternoon.
Mina Al Amin is the 41st accused in a case filed with the Paltan Police Station over protests and clashes in the Motijheel area on Thursday in protest of Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s visit to Bangladesh. Shakil-uz-Zaman’s name is not in the case. They are not among the 32 people arrested by the police.
Shakil is studying in the post-graduate class in the Department of Zoology at Jahangirnagar University in Savar. Mina is a student of Siddheswari College.
According to the sources, the two went to the Savar Memorial to pay their respects on the golden jubilee of independence.
Shakil-uz-Zaman’s father Shamsul Haque told Prothom Alo on Saturday evening that he has been getting his son’s mobile phone turned off since one o’clock on Friday. Later, he came to Savar from his home in Gopalpur village of Tangail in search of his son.
Shakil was found eating and drinking in a shop outside the main gate of Jahangirnagar University.
Shamsul Haque said eyewitnesses told him that Shakil was picked up by a ‘Radhab car’. There were two more with Shakil then.
Student council leaders said Mina Al Amin was with Shakil. They went to the memorial to give flowers. Both are missing.
No information was found by contacting RAB headquarters and RAB-4 to know about this.
