Human Rights Violations in Bangladesh: A Study of the Violations by the Law Enforcing Agencies

Suraya Momtaz


(The law enforcing agencies which are considered the key component of a democratic society all over the world are primarily responsible for the preservation of peace and order, protection of life and property of the citizens and prevention and detection of crime. But during the few years human rights violations by the law enforcing agencies in Bangladesh have increased alarmingly. This paper is an attempt to explore the reasons why protectors become perpetrators, to highlight the pattern of violations made by the law enforcing agency, their implications upon the law and order situation of Bangladesh. This paper also includes a critical appraisal of the existing laws governing the law enforcing agency and finally pinpoints some recommendations for eradication of the loopholes haunting in our security forces and to make them as a force functioning by the law, under the law and for the law.)
