Young gangsters in city blocks

THE brutal killing of Class ix student Adnan Kabir in the city's Uttara Township by a gang of unruly youths brings to the fore how a culture of gangsterism is quickly overtaking the city streets and locality in posh areas. In fact young people, mostly school going boys are increasingly resorting to violence as many of them are falling into drug addicts resorting to insanity. Adnan was killed by a group of young boys of his own locality on January 6 and many don't find the real reason except the fact that group hysteria and drug addiction led them to the killing.

News reports in a national daily on Tuesday said at least four groups now operate to dominate areas in the Uttara Township and they are confronting one another for supremacy. Adnan was chased to a long distance from a playground and then kicked and knifed to death. Killers showed their ferocity, although most of them are students while public remained at a distance for safety. Such gang culture is spreading all over the city to become bigger threat to social safety - to be more dangerous than the danger from militants while police are busy giving protection to the government leaders and fighting its opponents. 

At many places, local goons are also organizing the youth gangs with political support to their benefits and such youth even don't take time to kill fellow school and college going students. The number of killing of teenage students by fellow students in recent years is quite big and why the criminalization is spreading fast needs deeper socio-political screening. We must say police must give more attention to community peace to destroy such gangs at their initial stage. 

It appears that most young people are joining criminal gangs as drug addiction is spreading to make city blocks unsafe. Gangsterism as it suddenly surfaced is becoming a shock to local people and also an ominous sign of more gang violence to destabilize social peace. The spread of Yaba, phensidyl and such other drugs are increasing the juvenile delinquency and family elders are at a loss how to keep their young people away from such gang culture.

Not only in Uttara, teenagers in Gulshan and Banani and at other places are also becoming ruthlessly organized with criminal instinct, although it contradicts their age and education and family values. They often run motorcycles in high speed; create noisy sounds and stalk passing girls.

Why the school-going children mostly from rich families are engaging in gangsterism may partly be answered from the fact that many parents are unaware of their children's criminal engagement like those of the militants' parents. Family members often don't give time to children and it is becoming fatal at the end. It is time to destroy such gangsterism from city blocks.
