A student of El Geneina University was shot dead in Zalingei, capital of Central Darfur on Monday.

El Sanusi Hashim, student at the University of El Geneina and member of the Independent Students’ Conference, was fatally hit by an army bullet on Monday evening.

After returning from Jebel Marra to Zalingei, Hashim attended a ceremony in the town after the Ramadan breakfast, when soldiers shot at him. He was killed instantly, the Sudanese Congress Party (SCP) reported in a statement later on Monday.

The SCP calls for “a fair and transparent investigation into the incident and prosecution of the culprits [..] so that his young life will not be wasted.

“The prospects of a war of all against all are increasing by the day.”

“This awful crime is a part of the policies of a regime obsessed with shedding blood; a regime that strives to destroy the lives of the Sudanese. They are killed by war, torture, poverty, starvation, and disease,” the statement reads. “We see an overall collapse of the nation’s structure looming on the horizon. The prospects of a war of all against all are increasing by the day.”
