Teachers, students demand punishment of Nitu’s killer
Teachers and students of Nabagram High School in Kalkini upazila of Madaripur on Monday demanded exemplary punishment of the killer of its student Nitu Mondal who was hacked to death on Sunday, reportedly by a stalker.
They formed the human chain on the school premises at about 11:00am and made the demand.
Speaking at the human chain, Nabagram High School headmaster Sahadeb Chandra Baroi said Nitu, a nine grader, was a brilliant student as she secured GPA-5 in Junior School Certificate (JSC) examination. ‘We are deeply shocked over her brutal murder.’
He demanded the government ensure exemplary punishment of Nitu’s killer so that no one dares repeat such a barbaric incident.
Nitu’s classmates demanded the killer be hanged through a prompt trial, reports UNB.
Milon Mondal, son of Biren Mondal, who used to stalk Nitu Mondal, daughter of Nirmal Mondal, hit the girl with a sharp weapon in her abdomen, leaving her critically injured. She died on the way to the local health complex.
Locals caught Milon and handed him over to police. The victim’s father filed a murder case with Dasar Police Station at night.
Nitu’s body was taken to her school at noon where the teachers and her fellow students paid homage to her and bade her farewell with flowers and tears.
Later, her body was taken to her Alisakandi village home where a heart-rendering scene was created with the screams of her parents and relatives.
Meanwhile, police said Milon confessed to killing Nitu during their primary interrogation. Dasar Police Station sub-inspector and IO of the murder case Bayezid Mridha said they also recovered a knife that was used to kill Nitu from a bush near her house acting on the information given by Milon.
He said Milon also made a confessional statement before Madaripur Chief Judicial Magistrate court.
The SI said the court ordered Milon to be held in costody rejecting the remand prayer as he admitted to killing Nitu.
