Despite opposition by Human Rights Organizations, 36 people were killed in so-called cross fire during the last four months by law enforcers. A so-called extremist was killed today in a cross fire with police.
Human rights organizations in Bangladesh have said that over 2000 people have been killed in the last 8 years. Last year, 154 people were killed, and this trend seems to be continuing at a fast pace. Human rights activists speak about this ongoing trend and what steps need to be taken in order to end it.
