The killing of Bangladesh civilians on the border by the Indian Border Security Force is shocking and should be strongly addressed, Jean Lambert of European Parliament said yesterday.
She made the remarks while replying to queries at a press conference in Dhaka yesterday.
"This is going on for a considerable period," she said adding that the matter would be raised in the European Parliament and with the Indian ambassador in Brussels, the de facto capital of the European Union. It will also be taken up with the European delegation visiting India.
Lambert is the leader of a seven-member delegation of the European Parliament for Relations with South Asia that came to Dhaka on a five-day visit on February 19.
Without mentioning the BSF chief's name, she said the comments that the killing is inevitable were outrageous in terms of human rights.
European Union Ambassador in Dhaka William Hana was present at the press conference.
