noise. welcome to news asia it's good to have you with us we're beginning with celebrated bangor did you have last sunday that's the first day of the bengali calendar but one nineteen year old girl would never see those celebrations because she had been burned alive four days before. a student at an islamic center in that he was set ablaze about. sexual harassment police say he ordered some students and others to force her to withdraw the case she had lodged at the local station. refused and she paid for it with her life police say she was tied up at the sky off on the roof . and then set on fire she received fifty percent. face escaped the ordeal
4:32 pm
but before she died she managed to record a statement on her brother's phone she said the teacher touched me i've been fight this crime to my last breath. died in hospital on the tenth the fear for for more i'm joined by human rights lawyer saddam hussein from. saddam it's good to have you join us aside as we understand the police have arrested the alleged attackers in this case but what is the reaction be unbundled dish to this crime. well it's really ignited a massive public response i think a call to the nation from across the board in addition to the arrests there's been you know this in continuously good coverage continues response and protests all over the country. and i think it's not just your guests of people some of those who've been accused it's interesting to see that actually had to be taken against
4:33 pm
a police officer albeit very mild action i should say what the police officer and the local police station was sharing video content about this and the adverse comments that have made about princess and there was action taken against him to remove him from that station unfortunate sides you know anything for that but that's the kind of response we're seeing and i think some of that is you know because of. brutal nature of. it it woman who had the courage and and strength to demand justice for serial sexual harassment she faced from principle. then had to face a brutal much just simply for that fact and not to not mention was a woman who was stepping into much this very traditional conservative educational institution. she was seeking justice for god. by nations allegedly committed by a man who's already protected all of those things i think could be part of the
4:34 pm
reason for this reaction one protection to women in. the crime of sexual harassment to. women don't get much protection of this situation there are no laws and there's not a meet by parliament but there is a supreme court directive which equates all they can private education institutions to take stringent measures to both prevent and by under section resident but unfortunately the vast majority of institutions haven't taken your action on this and the government has taken no systematic actually to money so that i don't take action against those who seem to take steps and the really critical point is i think as you mentioned that women who seek protection against sexual violence have no protection themselves against threats and reprisals by fans as many who act actually with complicity of the law enforcement agencies to take out threats against women to seek justice but why is this continuing why is does this climate.
4:35 pm
continue to prosper why do people keep committing these crimes. they said these crimes have been going on for many years people have been vocal demanding justice for many not this years for decades now and i think the reason that they continue is because there is such impunity for the friend there's a great deal of noise made by the authorities by how they would impose the ice on the cement to carry out to continue no action but the systematic changes that they need to make to show fact try and shore justice of the. protections and most importantly to break the cycle of impunity that effect this enjoying get protection rather than the party and to enforce regencies that's what we do and actually this elected political will i think and i think we don't see dramatic change in that demi moore. thanks.
