#Indifference: Murdered blogger's wife says police 'Stoody By' as husband was attacked

The wife of a British-Bangladeshi blogger hacked to death in Dhaka last month claims that police just stood by as the couple were attacked on a university campus.

Avijit Roy, a well-known critic of religious extremism, was returning from a book fair with his wife Rafida Ahmed when machete-wielding assailants cut him down.

Mrs Ahmed was left with serious injuries.

"While Avijit and I were being ruthlessly attacked, the local police stood close by and did not act," Rafida told Reuters.

"Now, we demand that the Bangladeshi government do everything in its power to bring the murderers to justice."

Mohammad Masudur Rhaman, a deputy police commissioner of Dhaka Metropolitan Police, said authorities were investigating Rafida's claims.

The U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) is also helping with investigations.

Avijit's killing follows a string of attacks on secular bloggers in recent years in the Muslim-majority nation.  Media group Reporters Without Borders rated Bangladesh 146th among 180 countries in a ranking of press freedom last year.

Rafida urged the government to "stop a legal culture of impunity, where writers can be killed without the killers being brought to trial".

Bangladesh's anti-terrorism unit said last week it had arrested Farabi Shafiur Rahman in connection with the attack.

Rahman had previously been jailed for his ties to the extremist Hizbut Tahrir Islamist group.
