Jatiya Oikya Front on Wednesday launched a mass-signature campaign protesting the murder of Buet student Abrar Fahad.
Jatiya Samajtantrik Dal President ASM Abdur Rob inaugurated the campaign in front of the Jatiya Press Club by signing on a cloth sheet with his blood.Later, other senior leaders of the alliance also signed on it with red colour.
Abrar Fahad, 21, a resident of Sher-e-Bangla Hall of Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology (Buet), was beaten to death reportedly by some Chhatra League leaders and activists of the university unit on October 7 last.
Speaking at the programme, Abdur Rob said the trial of Abrar murder is still not initiated while Chhatra League has continued its repression in different educational institutions, including Jahangirnagar University.
He said they will collect signatures from people of all walks of life and students across the country.
Once the campaign is over, Rob said they will submit a copy of the signatures to parliament, different foreign missions and international organisations.
He said Jatiya Oikya Front Convener Dr Kamal Hossain could not attend the programme due to his illness, but he earlier put his signature at his Motijheel chamber.
