    Batting heroes fire together
    Back on song Tamim Iqbal plays a trademark off-the-toes flick on his way to a superb 95 against Scotland at the Saxton Oval in Nelson yesterday. Tamim's innings laid the foundation for the Tigers to chase down 318 in some style. Photo: AFP

    The 40-odd minute innings break was perhaps the most nervous moment for any Bangladeshi fan yesterday. It was dominated by a mixture of fear and disbelief. Did Kyle Coetzer actually send the Tigers on their way home? Can an inconsistent Bangladesh defy the odds and achieve the second highest run-chase in World Cups? The answers didn't seem like to go Bangladesh's way during the break. It seemed more impossible when Soumya Sarker got caught behind early. But...

Tough test for economy

To have a glimpse of the country's bleeding economy, look at Shohagh Paribahan. The long-distance bus operator now runs buses between 7:00am and 3:00pm daily, meaning no bus can leave the capital after 3:00pm. Its night coach service has been suspended on government directives. The company usually runs 15 luxury trips on the Dhaka-Chittagong route, but now it has come down to just two trips as passengers travel only if there is an emergency. The occupancy in the economy class has almost...

Too hard a reality for an orphan

It was too early for the 14-year-old orphan boy, Yasin Miah, to become a bus conductor. His mother had died seven years ago and his father last year. So he had to come forward to support the education of his younger brother, Arafat Miah, 12. The boy who was struggling so hard to support his family is now struggling for life at the...

Four top mobile phone operators may not take part in the forthcoming spectrum auction as some of the key issues that the government promised to sort out during the last bidding remain unresolved. In a joint letter, Grameenphone, Banglalink, Robi and Airtel drew Finance Minister AMA Muhith's attention to their “investors' inability to recommend participation” in the auction for 1,800 MHz and 2,100 MHz bands, due to be held on April 30. The auction gives operators an opportunity to acquire more bandwidth, needed to maintain service quality to their fast expanding customer base. Furthermore, the 1,800MHz spectrum is the international standard band for the fourth-generation wireless broadband service that provides fast internet. But in Bangladesh,...

     Op-ed

IT is disquieting to see that police has proposed change to some important safeguard provisions of Torture and Custodial Death (Prevention) Act, 2013. A prominent Bengali daily, Prothom Alo, has reported that the police authority has sent a proposal to Home Ministry to bring alterations in the definition, investigation process and punishment provisions stipulated in the Act. Though our constitution expressly prohibits torture and act amounting to torture in custody or investigation, sufficient legal regime had been lacking earlier on. After long efforts by the rights groups and concerned citizens including politicians the above mentioned Act came into being in 2013 as a positive response to Bangladesh's ratification of Convention Against Torture...
