Lawlessness must be held under check

MEDIA reports said in the last three days, 20 people were killed in road accidents in highways during the Eid vacation. These are reported figure and many believe relatively good weather during Eid vacation was helpful to avoid more accidents. But homicide and rape had darkened the occasion to remind that barbarity is not letting people to live safe and in peace.  Every such news is shocking but criminals are mercilessly taking life and raping women without care to law and order.

Five women were raped during the occasion mostly on their way home in the sideline of Eid celebration.  It shows total lawlessness on roads and highways for women to travel without being raped and harassed. Most of the homicides were committed centering meager incident while some others have no clue. Making citizens' life safe and secured is the foremost task of any government, but our government appears indifferent to give safety to common people while police and other law enforcers are busy arranging safety and security of government leaders and top bureaucrats,

It is not easily understood how transport workers can rape a university girl on way home during Eid vacation and kill her without fear of police reprisal. They know police are ineffective so they had not bothered police any way while committing crime in the highways. Some ruling party activists killed a student in Dhaka on this occasion. Some others killed a Class-IX student over a trifling matter in a cinema hall in Jamalpur. In another incident criminals killed a restaurant manager in Bogra, Local influentials also killed a policeman in Narayangonj and all such incidents exposed criminal mindset, greed, hatred and intolerance now overpowering our social life.

What is shocking is that in the last three days, police recovered decomposed body of a woman from a drum in Gazipur. In another incident, police recovered the body of a woman cut into 38 pieces from a drum at Ashulia in the outskirt of the city. In yet another incident police recovered body of an 11-year boy in Borguna.

The law enforcers do not know why these people were killed but clearly they were victims of intolerance of different forms. The criminals very tactfully committed the killings as they believe they can't be traced because police are otherwise busy to go after them. Rape cases are only on steady rise. In Patuakhali, three bikers raped a woman intercepting her way while going home on Eid vacation. Hearing screaming locals nabbed a rapist and the rest fled the scene. In Gaibandha, local people nabbed two youths for killing a seven-year old girl after molesting her.
