CAMBRIDGE, Mass. (WBZ NewsRadio) — Hundreds rallied in the streets of Somerville and Cambridge on Sunday to demand answers from Cambridge Police regarding the death of Sayed Arif Faisal, who was shot and killed by Cambridge Police in early January.

The Cambridge and Bengali community rallied together to demand justice for the Bengali UMass Boston student.

The protestors chanted while marching down the streets demanding to know the names of the officers involved in Faisal's death.

"Secondly, fire, indict, and convict the officers that killed Sayed Arif Faisal," one protestor shouted.

Cambridge Mayor Sumbul Siddiqui released a statement earlier this month saying she and other city leaders must do everything in their power to ensure this doesn't happen again.

"To Faisal’s family and friends, my heart breaks with you. Know that I hear you and your demands for accountability and change. I understand it feels as though the city you’ve called “home” has failed you; insofar as I’m able to repair this break, please know I am committed to doing so," Mayor Sumbul Siddiqui said.
