Sagar Runi murder case
IT is indeed frustrating for us to see that the sensational Sagar Runi murder case is not going anywhere although five years have passed and despite repeated assurances by the Home Mister that the murderers would be detained within 48 hours no matter how powerful they are. The gruesome murder shocked the entire nation and received wide media coverage both at home and abroad. The incident is still being closely watched by the international press freedom organizations. It is one of the most talked about murder cases in the history of Bangladesh, but sadly we see lacking in the investigation process. The failure to unearth the mystery of a high profile case like Sagar Runi murder for such a long time is unacceptable. The hope is gradually fading and it seems that the murder will remain shrouded in mystery until it is forgotten. Sagar Runi murder is a slap on the press freedom of our country. If we fail to ensure a free press then our democracy will be under threat and the basic rights of the common people will continue to be trampled.
