When the law enforcement agencies of Bangladesh will stop filling case/cases against unknown defendants. Is it another form of collective process of indicting unknown entities? In civil society, the law is directed against the individual not against group of unknown people. The law enforcement agencies should stop these kind of nonsense immediately.
