Tonu's mother cries for justice

Tonu’s mother cries for justice


As there has been no headway in Comilla Victoria college student Sohagi Jahan Tonu murder investigation even after three months of the incident, her mother on Monday renewed her demand for the immediate arrest of her killers and their punishment.“We’ve been under watch but the killers have not been arrested yet,” bemoaned Tonu’s mother Anwar Begum at a human chain programme at Pubali Chattar in Kandirpar in the city at noon.
Ganajagaran Mancha’s Comilla unit arranged the human chain programme under the banner of ‘Justice for Tonu’.
“Tonu’s father is not being allowed to talk to media. We’re not saying anything against the government. We’re just seeking justice. Our cable line has been disconnected so that we can’t watch news over Tonu’s murder,” she alleged.
Terming the autopsy report of Tonu ‘erroneous’, she demanded steps for bringing the doctors involved in it to book.
“She was killed as she went to visit Srimangal instead of performing in an army function. Army personnel took away Tonu’s diary and album from our house. No memorial symbol of Tonu was left at home,” she alleged.
Comilla unit general secretary of Bangladesh Communist Party Poresh Kor, Ganajagaran Mancha’s Comilla coordinator Khairul Anam Raihan, among others, spoke at the programme.
Sohagi Jahan Tonu, a second year student of History department of Comilla Victoria College and member of Victoria College Theatre, was found dead in a bush beside a culvert inside the Comilla Cantonment on March 20.
On March 30, Tonu’s body was exhumed from her grave for collecting DNA sample, fresh postmortem and proper investigation into the case.
Later, members of Crime Scene Unit of CID brought the DNA and other samples of teeth, nails and body to Dhaka for examination.
On June 12, revealing the second autopsy report, doctors at the Forensic Department of Comilla Medical College Hospital said they did not find any specific cause of the death of Tonu in their second autopsy report, but got the ‘sign of sexual intercourse’.
