Meanwhile, Kajal still remains with her abductor, and it has now been 133 days. A new date for the next hearing has yet to be announced.


PRESS RELEASE: The Home Ministry must urgently withdraw the discriminatory orders on the Chittagong Hill Tracts and Indigenous Peoples, Bangladesh

GHRD is deeply concerned by the unconstitutional and discriminatory orders of the Home Ministry. No other region or minority group is imposed to such restrictions and surveillance from the government in Bangladesh. The decisions violate the basic human rights of indigenous peoples; while potentially hinder the monitoring and documentation of human rights violations in the CHT. It is clear that these restrictions will be harmful for the welfare of region and its people.
