The High Court (HC) on June 2 ordered the authorities concerned to construct a monument at the place of Salanga in Sirajganj district, where British police massacred more than 4,000 Bengalis on January 27, 1922.

A High Court division bench of Justice Mustafa Zaman Islam and Justice S M Masud Hossain Dolon passed the order and issued a rule in this regard.

“The court in its rule asked the authorities concerned to explain why it shall not direct them to take necessary steps to declare January 27 as a national day commemorating the Salanga massacre victims,” said Advocate Asad Uddin, who moved a writ petition, filed in this regard.

More than 4,000 innocent Bengalis were killed by the British police force on that day as they were protesting against the oppression of the local zamindars and the trade monopoly of British goods in the local market.

According to local sources, around 10,000 people were killed on that day.
