Bangladesh: Justice for Rajon!

Bangladesh: Justice for Rajon!


Why this is important

Update - July 15, 2015
Following major protests across the country, four suspects have been arrested so far and will be tried through a speedy tribunal. Rajon’s family has also received 1.2 lakh taka in compensation. Let’s keep building the pressure until all the culprits are caught and tried!


13-year old Rajon was tied up, beaten brutally, and killed by a bunch of men in broad daylight. They even uploaded a video of their barbaric actions onto Facebook!

Rajon died from brain haemorrhage with 64 injury marks on his body. We can never bring him back, but we can ensure that the culprits are all caught and brought to justice for their unthinkable violence. We also must ensure that Rajon's family receives compensation.

Officer-in-Charge Mr. Akter Hossain at Jalalabad Police Station is not used to facing massive public pressure. If 10,000 of us raise our voices in the next hours, we can work with international media to take this story global and persuade him to do the right thing.

Sign the petition now calling on Mr. Hossain to take immediate steps to catch all the criminals, investigate the torture and killing thoroughly, and ensure justice for Rajon -- join now and tell everyone!
