Rajib murder case transferred to DB

The case for killing blogger Ahmed Rajib Haider was transferred to the Detective Branch (DB) of Dhaka Metropolitan Police (DMP) from the city’s Pallabi Police Station on Saturday night. The victim’s father on Saturday filed a case with Pallabi Police Station against several unidentified people for the killing.

Meanwhile, plainclothes police picked up five people from the city’s Pallabi area on Saturday for their suspected involvement in the killing of Rajib.

Detective sources said the five detained in separate raids in connection with the brutal murder included a girl named Tanjila who was said to be a girlfriend of Rajib and a blogger.

Rajib monument at Shahbagh

A temporary monument is expected to be raised at Shahbagh in memory of Rajib Haider, whose murder appears to have intensified the protests.

The monument is expected to be unravelled near the fountain at the Shahbagh intersection at 3:00pm on Sunday.

Blogger Nazrul Islam Sujan has displayed the design of the monument to the protestors at Shahbagh by holding it up.

Blogger and Online Activist Network’s Rowshan Jhunu described Rajib as the 'first martyr of Second Liberation War’, saying the present generation will fight it out to achieve the dreams on which Bangladesh was founded.
