Abstract

I propose to investigate the causes and effects of extra-judicial killings upon the people and society of Bangladesh. Extra-judicial killings are acting as a barrier during the progress of the country. Although criminals are the most hated class of people in our society, but according to the constitution of Bangladesh every citizen has equal rights to receive proper justice. Realizing the drawbacks of these killings is therefore important for the government and the law enforcing agencies. I intend my research work to be a background report from these people and hope that my research will help in creating awareness among the people and government.

I have identified few questions to be investigated: 1) What is extra judicial killing?
2) What are the causes of extra judicial killings?
3) What are the positive and negative effects of these killings on the people and society? 4) What are the steps needed to be taken to reduce these killings? 5) What is the position of the government, law enforcing agencies and the humanitarian organizations on this issue?

I will also provide an introduction about the extra judicial killings in Bangladesh and conclusion summarizing the results of my research.

* Has the humanitarian organizations raised its voice sufficiently against this issue? * Do the victims get support from the government?
* Are there any laws to avoid these killings?
* Do the suspects or criminals...
