Aligarh: The Aligarh Muslim University Students` Union has demanded swift inquiry and setting up of a fast-track court to try the killers of slain DSP Zia-ul-Haq.

The students` body held a candlelight march last night on campus to express its "sense of deep anguish" over the killing of Haq by a mob in Pratapgarh on Saturday and solidarity with his wife, who is an alumnus of women`s college at AMU.

In a memorandum to the Uttar Pradesh Governor, the union has demanded a time-bound inquiry into the alleged role of former food and civil supplies minister Raghuraj Pratap Singh, alias Raja Bhaiyya in the DSP`s killing.
The union has demanded setting up of a fast track court to ensure that justice is meted out to those involved in the brazen killing of the police officer.

They also expressed solidarity with the slain policeman`s wife Parveen Azad and demanded that she should be given adequate security in view of reported threats to her life.

Members of the union said "politicians who have a criminal background should be removed from all political parties and their membership terminated".
Friends and former colleagues of Azad described her as a "gutsy girl", who was always prepared to take a stand even in her student days here.
