Attacking journo Peer's house condemned

Bangladesh Federal Union of Journalists (BFUJ) and Dhaka Union of Journalists (DUJ) condemned attack on the residence of Bangladesh Pratidin Executive Editor Peer Habibur Rahman.

In a statement on Sunday, BFUJ president Molla Jalal and secretary general Saban Mahmud expressed deep concern over attack on Uttara residence of renowned journalist and columnist Habib by some vested quarter.

DUJ president Kuddus Afrad and secretary general Sazzad Alam Khan Topu also criticised the attack, purporting to dissuade the journalist from speaking the truth.

Hailing police for taking timely action and chasing the attackers, the journalist leaders also demanded exemplary punishment to the culprits responsible for the incident.
