HRW raps govt over enforced disappearances

Human Rights Watch (HRW) today criticised Bangladesh government over the enforced disappearances carried out allegedly by the law enforcement agencies in the country.

In a long report, the international rights group also recommended prompt investigation into the allegations of such disappearances, “locate and release those held secretly”.

The HRW especially highlighted the “disappearance” cases of the ruling Awami League’s political opponents – Jamaat-e-Islami and the BNP.

The report it prepared, published today, provides details of some of the over 90 reported disappearances that took place during 2016.

It also slammed the government over “crossfires” or “gunfights” and also pushed for investigation into those cases.
