We deeply mourn the death of Mst. Fatema (21) who succumbed to her injuries after being doused in kerosene and set on fire by her neighbor. 21 years old Fatema was set on fire on July 1st by her neighbor when she refused to accept his sexual advances. Fatema sustained 43% burn and was admitted in Dhaka Medical College Hospital where she passed away on July 11, 2016. We express deep sorrow and urge the authorities to take necessary steps to prevent this type of violence and ensure that Fatema and her family get justice.
