Besides, the party will also arrange Doa Mahfil in mosques across the country after Juma prayers on Friday seeking salvation of the departed souls subjected to government’s planned killings, including Milon.

BNP senior joint secretary general Ruhul Kabir Rizvi announced the programme at a press conference at its Nayapaltan central office on Thursday.

Their party’s all district and city units will stage demonstrations holding black badges on Sunday, he said.

In the capital, their all thana units will also hold the similar programme on the day, the BNP leader added.

Plainclothes police arrested Milon, also the acting president of Tejgaon thana unit of JCD, on March 6 in front of the Jatiya Press Club on his way back home after attending a human chain programme of the party.

He was taken on a three-day remand on March 8 and sent to jail on Sunday.

Milon was taken to Dhaka Medical College Hospital on Monday morning where doctors declared him dead. BNP alleged that he died due to ‘brutal torture on him during the remand.”
