Samajik Protirodh Committee on Monday demanded exemplary punishment of the killer of retired Dhaka University (DU) teacher Professor Sayeda Gaffar Khaleque.

The committee in a written statement signed by Dr Fauzia Moslem expressed deep shock at the murder of the professor and demanded the punishment of the killer.

Samajik Protirodh Committee is an alliance of 64 women and rights platforms.

The statement read, “Besides the killings of women and children, people from different walks of life become victims of torture in the country every day. That’s why the security of the citizens is badly being hampered. In this situation, Samajik Protirodh Committee demands security of the people and improvement of overall situation.”   

On Friday, police recovered the body of the professor from a jungle at Painshail in Gazipur city after she went missing on January 11.
