Want Justice for Palash Roy Killing
Madam Sheikh Hasina, Prime Minister
The Government of Bangladesh
Subject: A memorandum asking for due justice in the murder of Advocate Palash Kumar Roy.
Dear Madam Prime Minister:
It is with great anguish that we received the news of the death a young and vibrant lawyer, Mr. Palash Kumar Roy of Panchagar. Mr. Roy was a dedicated worker of the Awami League who was a candidate for the position of Vice Chairman the Atwari Upazila. On March 25, 2019, he was imprisoned on false charges. This mild mannered man languished in the jail for almost a month. On April 26, he was set on fire by unknown assailants within the prison compound. The prison authorities neglected to inform his mother, Mrs. Mira Rani, who was an Awami League Woman Vice-Chair of the Atwari Upazila, about the incident. Mr. Palash expired on May 1. According to Mrs. Rani, Mr. Palash had described to her the pre-planned attack before his death. Mr. Palash was an intelligent young man with a great future who wanted to serve the country. It is our sincere request, Your Excellency, that you look into this matter so that justice is done and the culprits of this heinous deed are duly punished.
Thank you very much.
On behalf of concerned citizens
