Pen has been shifted to knife

Many boys of the same age of Mithun (14) and Rahul (12) are engaged in butchery at the Geneva Camp of Mohamadpur, Dhaka. Nobody has ever told them to continue their education. Instead of going to school they have taken over knife, dagger, chopper in hand at this age. This has brought adverse impact in the area. Local leaders allege that 50% of some 5,000 encamped children of 6-10 are someway involved in the butchery trade, which is being illegally run in front of the administration. In the dead night, the camp becomes an illegal slaughter-house. The general camp-dwellers don’t have the courage to protest in fear of the cruelty and anger, and sharp knives of the drunk-butchers.
