Prothom Alo reporter Shams’s mother joins human chain in Dhamrai

Ashulia (Savar) Correspondent

Prothom Alo reporter Samsuzzaman Shams's mother Karimon Nesa took part in a human chain programme in Dhamrai on Dhaka-Aricha highway, demanding release of the journalist who was arrested in a Digital Security Act case recently .

Dhamrai Reporters' Club and Dhamrai Upazila Press Club organised the human chain in Dauti area at around 11:00am demanding unconditional release of Shams, immediate withdrawal of the cases filed against him and Prothom Alo Editor Matiur Rahman and repeal of the DSA.

Along with the journalists and more than 100 locals were seen standing silently. She was in tears and did not say a word.

Shams's sister-in-law Salma Akhter, wife of AC Rabiul Karim, who laid down his life during the 2016 Holey Artisan attack, and cousin Faruk Hossain also joined the human chain.

Faruk strongly condemned and protested against the arrest of Shams under the "controversial act" and said, "At the same time, I want the unconditional release of my brother immediately." Speakers at the human chain said that despite repeated assurances from the policymakers that journalists would not be harassed under the DSA, journalists are mostly being affected by this act.

Adnan Hossain, President of Dhamrai Reporters Club, said, "Journalists are being harassed repeatedly under the controversial Digital Security Act. We demand his [Shams's] immediate and unconditional release and repeal of the Digital Security Act."
