Dhaka, Jan 30 (bdnews24.com) – The High Court has turned down the writ petition filed seeking measures to identify those who failed to protect ‘Felani’, killed by Indian border guards.

A High Court bench of justices A H M Samsuddin Chowdhury and Sheikh Mohammad Zakir Hossain passed the order on Sunday saying the charges were ‘not pressed’.

The National Forum for Protection of Human Rights filed the petition on Jan 17.

Counsel for the petitioner advocate Tajul Islam, told bdnews24.com, “As the court didn’t agree to give a positive direction on the issue, we appealed to the court to have the petition dismissed for not being pressed.”

He said, “If the court had given an order on the issue, further petitions could not be filed in the future.”

The petition was filed also seeking the court’s direction to take steps to stop the killing of Bangladeshi citizens along the Indian border and compensate Felani’s family.

The home secretary, the foreign secretary, the BGB director general, BGB’s Rangpur sector commander and 27 battalion commander were made defendants in the petition.

‘Felani’, 15, was shot dead by BSF at Anantapur on Jan 7. Locals said Felani’s father Nurul Islam Nuru hailed from Banarbhita village of Nageshwari and worked in Delhi.

‘Felani’ was returning to Bangladesh with her father as her marriage had been settled with a local boy.

Nuru, however, managed to cross the barbed-wires with a ladder but Felani’s clothes got entangled in the wires. Hearing her screams, the BSF members gunned down her and took away the body.
