The young vegetable vendor was accused of theft and had died as a result of the beating he received. An autopsy at Sylhet Medical College Hospital showed that he died from severe head injuries.
Sylhet Metropolitan City Additional Police Commissioner SM Rokon Uddin had said that they have arrested 8 people so far and were looking for 2 additional suspects who had hidden the body. He had said that there were bystanders during the incident but not one of them reported or informed the police.
The protesters claimed Rajon's lynching was not the first incident of violent torture but the country had a big problem with their justice system.
