Border of Impunity by A.M. Ahad

Elaich Mia, 22 was shot by the Indian BSF 25 times while he, Ashraful Islam and Shona Mia were extracting stones at the Kalidar Stone Quarry in Companyganj, Sylhet. He had to be confined in the hospital for 8 days. These scars are the remainders of that brutal evening. © A.M. Ahad


This image is a part of my ongoing project “Border of Impunity”; this is a story about the ongoing killings at the Bangladesh-India border. This story aims to highlight the continuous violation of human rights happening there by showing stories of Bangladeshis who were killed, how their families are coping and how the government is ignoring their very own citizens. This story aims to shake and wake-up the government by showing them and the world the realities and hopefully drive them to act and bring to justice all the victims of this border of impunity.
