Shadhinota Shikkhak Parishad (Shaship) has given an ultimatum to arrest the killers of college teacher Utpal Kumar Sarker in Savar within 24 hours. Shaship General Secretary Principal Shahjahan Alam Sahju came up with the ultimatum at a human chain and protest rally on Shaheed Minar premises at upazila parishad complex in Savar on Tuesday.
Principal Shaju said, "Killing of Savar college teacher and giving garland of shoes around the neck of a Narail college principal are example of barbarism. Such atrocities will never be tolerated."To mention, Swapan Kumar Biswas, acting principal at Mirzapur United College of Narail, was forced to wear a garland of shoes on 18 June after a tense situation centering a Facebook post on a leader of India's ruling BJP, by a student of the college.
Another teacher of Haji Yunus Ali School and College in Savar Utpal Kumar Sarkar was seriously injured when a student hit him with a cricket stump on Saturday. He later died at Enam Medical College Hospital in Savar on Monday morning."Such abominable acts are ruining the successes of the government," Shaju continued.
Principal Shaju called upon the teachers' community of the country to get united with an aim to protect their dignity. Adhar Chandra Govt High School headmaster and Shaship leader Ratan Peter Gomez presided over the program. Shaship central joint secretary general Hari Chand Mandal Sumon, organizing secretary Principal Telowat Hossain Khan, Shaship Savar unit general secretary Jahirul Islam, Ishaque Hossain, Jahangir Alam, Moniruzzaman addressed the function, among others.
Later, a memorandum was submitted to Savar upazila nirbahi officer in presence of Sate Minister for Disaster Management and Relief Dr Md Enamur Rahman with a demand to arrest the killers of Utpal Kumar Sarkar within 24 hours.
