Subject: Death by torture & rape of garment worker Rahela Akhter Lima by Liton & his companions.

Sir,

We are writing to seek your expeditious intervention for a speedy trial and to protest the inhuman conditions in which Rahela Akhter Lima, a 19 years old garment worker was held by Liton and three of his friends which led to her death on 22nd September 2004, 33 days after she was raped and brutally tortured.

Rahela Akhter Lima, was mugged, gang raped and was stabbed several times in Savar in August 2004. Her brutally tortured body was abandoned in the bush by Jahangirnagar University, Savar. Two days later on 24th August, 2004 those criminals came back to check her body and found her alive. She begged of them drinking water but instead, they poured acid on her to confirm her death. But Rahela survived. Later Rahelaвs raped, wounded, gangrenous body was rescued by Police.

After 33 days long battle for life Rahela died on 24th September 2004 at Dhaka medical college hospital. Needless to say, this inhuman and outrageous barbarism shocked the whole nation.

Main criminal Liton escaped arrest and is free till today.
Three of his alleged companions involved with the crime are freed on bail from high court.

As the unfortunate victim of this heinous crime was from a very poor socioeconomic condition, her family gave up fighting for justice as they could not afford. вAyin o shalish kendraв in Dhaka, Bangladesh has been prosecuting Rahela murder case ever since. The case of this odious crime is in poor shape now; 29th October 2007 was last hearing date. Unfortunately none of the witnesses appeared on court on that day. Moreover, this case is experiencing number of difficulties!

вOrder immediate arrest of main criminal Liton.
вOrder for forensic evidences Rahela was carrying on her body at the time of her rescue.
вProvide security for all witnesses so they do not hesitate to attend the court for hearing.
вOrder proper investigation and legal procedures in order to establish immediate justice via a speedy trial for Rahela & her family.
