Unicef today condemned the incidents of violence against children in Bangladesh.
“This is a serious violation of child rights and Unicef expresses its grave concern over such issues which have shaken the entire country,” said Edouard Beigbender, a Unicef representative in a press release issued today.
The comments came after at least three teenagers died in separate parts of the country in recent times after being subjected to torture.
“Unicef strongly believes that the Government of Bangladesh will do everything within its power to bring perpetrators to justice and help to end such violence against children,” Beigbender said.
The Unicef representative also lauded media’s efforts in bringing such incidents to light, “Unicef Bangladesh takes this opportunity to highlight the responsible role played by the country’s media in reporting such crimes against children.”
