Staff Reporter :
Quota reform movement leader Rashed Khan's mother Saleha Begum on Wednesday made an appeal to Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina to free her son, scrapping his remand, and to ensure his safe life.
 'My son is not against the government. Rather he is in favour of the government. The Prime Minister is a mother and I want back my son as a mother,' Saleha Begum said.
Addressing a press conference at Bangladesh Crime Reporters' Association office in the capital, she said, 'I saw my handcuffed son, Tuesday on the court
premises. He told me to arrange a press conference to appeal to the Prime Minister to free him.
 'I cannot pass even a moment without hearing from my only son. Now, I am walking door to door,' she said.
 'His movement was for a job. We hoped a lot from him. Now I don't want his job. I want my son free so that he could get a chance to complete his studies.'
Rashed's wife Rabeya Alo said that she feared that her husband's physical condition "is  not good."
 'Quota movement was a logical movement. But now, it has been taking different turn which we don't want to say,' she said.
Rashed's younger sister Sonia Khatun also spoke.
On July 1, DB police arrested Rashed, Joint Convener of Bangladesh General Students' Rights Protection Council, from Bhasantek area of the city after Al Nahian Khan Joy, Law Affairs Secretary of Bangladesh Chhatra League, filed a case under ICT Act with Shahbagh police station.
