The bad-luck Bangladehi innocent girl Felani, who was shot to death by BSF
A Writ petition was filed on Monday with the High Court seeking its direction upon the government to take effective measures to stop killings of Bangladeshi citizens in the Bangladesh-India border by the Indian force.
A Supreme Court lawyer, Advocate Tazul Islam, filed the petition after a Bangladeshi girl, Felani, was shot to death by BSF and hanged with ware-fancy at Fulbari border while she was crossing the border on January 7.
In the petition, the HC's direction was also sought upon the government to give proper compensation to the family of Felani.
Hearing on the matter is likely to be held at the HC bench comprising Justice Md Miftah Uddin Choudhury and Justice Jahangir Hossain on Sunday, said the lawyer.
In the petition, another direction of the HC was sought to form a commission that will investigate into the incident of Felani killing and submit its report to the court.
It was said in the petition that the government failed to protect lives of the citizens even to protest the Felani killing effectively in diplomatic manner.
The inaction of the government regarding the BSF killings is a violation of the Constitution and has questioned the sovereignty of the country, the petition stated.
