Miscreants demolish Shaheed Minar in Magura

Unidentified miscreants have demolished three pillars of Shaheed Minar at Bajruk Srikundi College premies at Sadar upazila of Magura. On Sunday morning, the teachers and students of the college went to pay their tributes to the language heroes and found the Shahid Minar broken.

Bajruk Srikundi College Principal Pallab De Kajal said the non-MPO college, established in 2002, initially paid homage to the language heroes at the temporary Shaheed Minar on February 21. But three years ago a three-pillar Shaheed Minar was built. As it is a village college, flowers are given at this Shaheed Minar in the morning instead of the first minutes of Ekushey. The premises of Shaheed Minar was cleaned on Saturday afternoon to pay homage to language heroes. But in the morning the teachers and students went to the college and found all the three pillars of the Shaheed Minar lying. When the matter was later reported to the Magura police administration, the police officers visited the spot. The college principal demanded an investigation into the incident and justice for those involved.

Magura Additional SP Kamrul Hasan said, "After receiving the news, we have visited the spot and saw the Shaheed Minar broken. No one has been able to say when or how it has broken. However, the matter is being investigated.
