Their hands and legs were tied up. The district's lawyers association has since been demonstrating to protest against the murders. They also observed a general strike in Narayanganj on Sunday.After a protest procession at Chandmari area on Tuesday, Sakhawat Hossain at the rally declared, "We will lay a siege to the RAB-11 office on Sunday (May 11) if there is no progress in the probe and the accused are not arrested by Saturday."
