Journalists leaders on Wednesday demanded immediate arrest of the killers and the mastermind behind the killing of journalist couple, Sagar Sarwar and Mehrun Runi.

Marking the 3rd death anniversary of slain couple journalists, different organizations of journalists' community made their demand through discussions, human chain, protest rally, and submitting memorandums to the home ministry and National Human Rights Commission for ensuring exemplary punishment of their killers.

There has not yet been any major headway in the probe into the killing though three years have passed since they were stabbed to death in a rented flat in city's West Rajabazar in the wee hours of February 11, 2012.

Eminent writer Syed Abul Maksud, journalists Monjurul Ahsan Bulbul, MA Aziz, Altaf Mahmud, Abdul Hai Sikdar, Quddus Afrad, Jahangir Alam Prodhan, Shakawat Hossain Badsha, Israf Hossain Isa also, among others, addressed in separate rallies held at DRU and Jatiya Press Club premises.

Runi's brother Nowsher Roman also addressed the rally while the couple's only son, Mahir Sarwar Megh, was also present.
