The All BTC Minority Students’ Union is preparing to observe first death anniversary Lafikul Islam Ahmed, who was the ABMSU president, on August 1, 2018 at Bhotgaon High School playground in Kokrajhar district.
Late Lafikul Islam Ahmed, who was a popular leader of the minority community, was shot dead last year on August 1 by unidentified miscreants at Titaguri in Kokrajhar.
Speaking to reporters at the ABMSU office in Bhotgaon, Sakamal Khandakar, president of ABMSU said, “The chief editor of Pratidin Time, Nitumoni Saikia, will attend as the Chief Guest at the first death anniversary of Lafikul Islam Ahmed on August 1 at Bhotgaon High School playground in Kokrajhar,” adding, “The other guests to be present in the programme are senior journalist Manjit Mahata, intellectual Haider Hussain, ABSU president Pramod Boro, Bengali Federation president Munthu Dey, AASSA president Stephen Lakra, AKRSU president Arun Ray, AASU leader Nabajoyti Ray and representatives of various other organizations.”
Khandakar also said that more than 10,000 people from Kokrajhar, Chirang, Baksa and Udalguri districts would gather the first death anniversary of Lafikul Islam Ahmed and massive preparation has been going on to make the event a success.
He added, “A total of 500 volunteers from the ABMSU will be there in the programme. There will be seat capacity for 5,000 people in the open session.”
Khandakar also said, “Our leader, late Lafikul Islam Ahmed was shot dead in the broad daylight last year on August 1 at Titaguri in Kokrajhar. The Assam Government formed SIT to investigate into Lafikul’s killing and later the case was handed over to the CBI. But till date, they have failed to arrest the main culprits who were involved in the killing of Lafikul and give justice to the victim’s family as well as the ABMSU. So, we demand the CBI to give justice to the victim’s family by sending the main culprits behind the bar and get stringent punishment.”
