7 Years of Sagar-Runi Murder Ain o Salish Kendra (ASK)’s Concern

Even though seven years have passed since the murder of journalist couple, Sagar Sarowar and Meherun Runi, the police, Detective Branch Police and RAB have found no clues, whatsoever, regarding the murder. Ain o Salish Kendra (ASK) expresses deep discontent and protest over the lack of any progress in ensuring justice in that incident after all these years.

Sagar Sarowar, the then news editor of Maasranga Television, and Meherun Runi, the then senior reporter of ATN Bangla, were killed on 11 February 2012. Submission date of the progress report on the murder has been deferred repeatedly, investigation officer has been changed several times, but so far there has been no progress in revealing the mystery behind the murder.

ASK believes that ensuring fair trial to such heinous murder is a must for establishing justice in the society. ASK demands quick submission of the investigation report and effective completion of the trial in order to set an example of ensuring justice.
