Matiur Rahman Mallik, a ninth grade student of Nabakumar Institution, was killed during a street march demanding autonomy for the then East Pakistan by the Pakistan police on 24 January 1969 . The day is seen as Mass Upsurge Day by the Bangladeshi as it eventually led to the Bangladesh Liberation war.[2] In remembrance of this great sacrifice for the nation Matiur Rahman Monument was constructed in its premises.
