Today at South Asian Media Academy (Pathshala) a press conference was held by Shahidul Alam, the renowned photographer and the principal of Pathshala who was threatened by unknown young man during the exhibtion Crossfire. On the inauguration of South Asian Media Academy Alam’s exhibition of None Judicial Murder CROSSFIRE was exhibited and law and enforcement team stopped that exhibition.
During the exhibition one young man (looks like a RAB soldier who has short hair and well build body as per guards and Shahidul Alam’s description) came to Drik and threatened Alam to kill him if he exhibit those photos.
At the press conference Alam told to the journalists that if someone threatened a citizen in front of the police in daylight that is really shameful for our system. And after this threat he is forced to ride in a Microbus instead of the bi-cycle.
Today Government lawyers confirmed this morning to the Vacation Bench of the High Court today that the police deployed in front of the DRIK Gallery had been withdrawn and that there would be no obstruction to the exhibition from now on.
