16,000 killings in four years

Home boss tells JS

More than 16,000 people were murdered and over 3,000 incidents of abduction and forced disappearance took place in the last four years in the country, the home minister told parliament yesterday.

In response to lawmakers' queries, Muhiuddin Khan Alamgir also said 50,000 incidents of repression on women occurred during the same period with 19,422 of those last year alone.

He said 900 people were punished in the cases filed for repression on women, acid throwing, abduction and rape.

Of the murders, the minister said, 51 were political and 16,285 were apolitical.

The law enforcement agencies have prepared a list of criminals and are keeping constant vigil on their movements to improve law and order, he mentioned.

In response to another query, Muhiuddin said 20 to 25 people were made accused in the first information report in the Biswajit murder case, and 11 were arrested.

There are 68 prisons in the country and they can accommodate 33,570 prisoners but there are now 68,402, he said.

    I think MKA will take credit for keeping the law and order situation in the country in such a horrible condition since he himself is so good in breaking the the law.
