We will go to the UN if BSF doesn’t stop killing Bangladeshis: NHRC chairman

National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) Chairman Dr Mizanur Rahman on Wednesday said that if India fails to stop its BSF’s killing Bangladesh nationals along the border, the matter will be forwarded to the United Nations. “The killing incidents are not acceptable. If it is not stopped, we will raise the matter in the Human Rights Council of the United Nations,” he said while speaking at a function marking inauguration of Brahmanbaria district committee of the Commission.

He added, “We have written to the chairman of Indian National Human Rights Commission urging him to take up the border killings with its central government for immediate steps to stop killing of innocent Bangladeshis along the border.”

Deputy Commissioner M. Abdul Mannan, Additional Police Super Faisal Mahmud and District Unit President M Biplob also attended the function.
