Border killings must stop

Every year, many Bangladeshi citizens become victims of border killings. According to newspaper reports, the BSF killed 48 Bangladeshis in 2020.
If anyone commits a crime at the border, let them be brought under the law. Despite several rounds of talks between Bangladesh and India, the border situation has not changed. But sincere efforts by India can help stop border killings of Bangladeshis.

Parental supervision a must

Young people between the ages of 14-18 are getting involved in unlawful activities in the country. The reason behind it is the lack of proper mental development of adolescents and the absence of proper parental supervision.
To overcome such undesirable situations, parents should give children more time of their day, even though it may be difficult sometimes. Children should also be kept involved in constructive and intellectually rewarding activities.
