On February 21, 2015 at night, state sponsored terrorist force arrested the Drama editor Nahid Sultana Lisa, music editor Farhana Haq Shaama, and member Mahbub hassan of the Gonomuktir Ganer dol and the editor and member of the little magazine Lamppost respectively, without any allegation and warrant while they were returning to their residence after attending a death anniversary program at the Teachers Student Center (TSC) of Dhaka University of the eminent journalist and the founder President of Gonomuktir Ganer dol, Foyej Ahmed on February 20, 2015.

At the Ramna Police Station, they have been subjected to inhuman and degrading treatment overnight. After a day of detention, Police produces them to the court demanding five days remand. The court refused bail and rimand and sent them to the jail permitting interogation at jail gate. We condemn the fascist treatment of the state and urge all the teachers-students-intellectuals,cultural and democratic personnel to involve themselves in the struggle for establishing a new democratic state for the peasants, the workers and the working class people by the abolishment of this fascist state.
