Abstract

One month ago today Sohagi Jahan Tonu, a university student at Comilla Victoria College, was found dead in a secured military cantonment. Her murder and suspected rape has sparked widespread outrage on social media, followed by massive student protests in Dhaka and further afield. Tasmiah Rahman considers why this particular murder has created such a stir, and argues that the protests are reflective of both the handling of the case and wider grievances against law enforcement agencies.
