N’ganj Mancha activist’s son found dead

Body of the teenaged son of Narayanganj Ganajagaran Mancha unit organiser and cultural personality Rafiur Rabbi was recovered from the Shitalakkha river Friday, two days after he went missing.

Rabbi identified his son Tanvir Mohammad Twaki, 17, after his body was recovered from a canal river around 10:45am.

Narayanganj Sadar Model Police Station Officer in Charge Monjur Kader said the body was sent to the Narayanganj General Hospital for autopsy.

“There were no wounds on his (Twaki’s) body,” he said.

Twaki attended his Ordinary Level (O-Level) examinations this year from ABC International School in the city’s Chasharah. His results were announced Thursday where he had secured record marks in Physics.

The OC Thursday said they were unable to find any personal enemies of Twaki in the initial findings.

He said investigations were on to find if some enemies had emerged from Rabbi’s citizen and cultural movements.

Twaki went out of his Old Court Road residence (at city’s Shayesta Khan Road) around 4:30pm Wednesday, said Rabbi. “He did not return after that.”

The Ganajagaran Mancha activities in Narayanganj followed the Shahbagh movement demanding execution of war criminals.

Rabbi made speeches on several occasions in support of the cause.

Blogger Ahmed Rajib Haider, another frontline activist of the Shahbagh’s Ganajagaran Mancha, was hacked to death in Pallabi on Feb 15 – the 10th day of Shahbagh protests.

Police have arrested five North South University students over the murder. They all have reportedly confessed and admitted to their role in the murder.

Similarly, Sylhet Ganajagaran Mancha unit activist and former Joint Convenor of Metropolitan unit of the Bangladesh Chhatra League Jagatjyoti Talukder was killed in Jamaat-Shibir attacks in Akhalia of the district on Mar 2.

A case was filed over the killing accusing 50, including the city’s Metropolitan Jamaat chief and Shibir President.

Another blogger, Saniur Rahman, 28, was stabbed Thursday night in Pallabi. Blogger Asif Mahiuddin said Saniur was a Shahbagh movement activist.
