Sylhet, Aug 5 (UNB) – The Association of Indigenous Students, of Shahjalal University of Science and Technology (SUST) unit on Sunday formed a human chain and rally demanding safe roads and justice for rape victims of the Chittagong Hill Tracts.

They formed a human-chain around 1 pm and held a procession which marched around the campus. Later the students held a rally at central library of the campus.  

The speakers of the protest said the government should ensure social security and safe roads but the government seems indifferent to such demands.

They said incidents of rape continue to persist in the Hill Tracts and around the country and condemned government for all such incidents.

They also urged the government to bring the culprits of accidents and rape under justice and ensure security for countrymen.

On July 29, Diya Khanam Mim and Abdul Karim Rajib, students of the college section of Shaheed Ramiz Uddin School and College, were killed as a 'Jabal-e-Noor Paribahan' bus ploughed through some students in front of Kurmitola General Hospital on Airport Road which sparked off protests among the students across the country.
On the same day at Noymile area of Dighinala in Khagrachhari a class V female student of ethnic community was brutally killed after being raped.
