Technically, Bangladesh has a zero tolerance policy against torture or any form of custodial abuse, which may or may not lead to death in custody. Our law minster alarmed as much in front of the UN Committee Against Torture in Geneva, Switzerland nearly two years ago.
But as much as we would like this to be true, reports indicate that torture does indeed frequently take place in custody, sometimes with fatal consequences. Many individuals have clearly stated that they were abused in jail -- they cannot all be lying. We have a legal and moral responsibility, then, to investigate this matter, and take action against any violation of the law on part of our law enforcement officers.
