DOT Desk: Demanding justice killing of Bangladesh origin Sayed Faisal, a Cambridge resident and a student of the University of Massachusetts, Boston, a human chain was held in front of the foreign ministry in Dhaka yesterday, reports The Daily Star.
A Cambridge police official shot and killed an allegedly armed Faisal on January 4, prompting dozens to protest police brutality and call for transparency at Cambridge City Hall on January 5.
The protest comes when the US National Security Council’s Senior Director for South Asia Rear Admiral Eileen Laubacher is scheduled to hold meeting with Foreign Secretary Masud Bin Momen at the foreign ministry.
She is on a four-day visit to discuss security, Rohingya crisis and other bilateral issues.
Journalist and columnist Ajay Das Gupta said it is very unfortunate that the US police shot dead a Bangladeshi who was not found guilty of any crime. “We want justice for him,” he said.
He said there are many incidents of human rights violations and racial violence taking place in the US but they are advising other countries on human rights.
