Expressing grave concern over the growing violence against women, veteran journalist Kamal Lohani on Friday demanded immediate arrest and exemplary punishment of those who commit crimes like rape, reports UNB.

He came up with the demand while addressing an awards ceremony organised by Granthakanan as the chief guest at the Jatiya Press Club.

From a minor girl to a young one, no one is safe from this violence in the society, Kamal Lohani said.

 “It needs to be identified that why we’re not being able to control the crime and why justice is not being ensured.”

Terming rapists as beasts, he said it is a dangerous sign that the criminals are getting freed even after committing such heinous crimes.

He lamented that social values are disappearing fast from people’s life and the society is going through serious deterioration.

Granthakanan, a publishing house, awarded nine women from all over the country for their contributions to respective fields. Professor Dr Hayat Mamud and Shahjahan Abdali, founding manager of Granthakanan, also spoke on the occasion.
