Doubt arising due to delay in Tonu murder probe: NHRC chief
Delay in Sohagi Jahan Tonu murder probe has made people doubt the progress in capturing real culprits, National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) Chairman Prof Mizanur Rahman said today.
People have expressed doubt that the murder case would be diverted, the NHRC said.
The NHRC chairman made the remark while explaining that general people feel insecure if law and order situation deteriorates in the country.
He was addressing an international conference on Human Rights and Criminal Justice Delivery System in Bangladesh at Le Méridien Dhaka.
He termed the conventional criminal justice system “grossly faulty” and “influenced” and said people’s confidence in justice system is going down.
He stressed that the problems in criminal justice system are needed to be identified and solved.
If law enforcers refuse to accept victims’ general diaries or first information reports (FIR), to whom people will turn to, he questioned.
