I have to brace myself before opening newspapers or turning on the television or radio, knowing very well that disappointing news is waiting there. In the November 4, 2010 issue of The Daily Star, there is quite a number of such news. Road crashes kill 9, 60 hurt in cop-student clash in city, BSF kills 1, man kills wife in city, JU journo assaulted by BCL men, agitators besiege BRTA office, abductors kill 4-year-old boy, muggers stab trader to death. The situation is worsening day by day, and there is no improvement. To tackle the situation law-enforcing agents must fan out all over the country and remain vigil all the time. Criminals must get exemplary punishment, in no circumstances should they be allowed to get away.
