State executioners in their various guises are explored in all their horrific detail by Tasneem Khalil, in his new book Jallad: Death Squads and State Terror in South Asia (Pluto, 2016). From the Rapid Action Battalion of Bangladesh to the men in white vans in Sri Lanka, the book interrogates both the brutal specificities of state agents, as well as the underlying themes that cross cut state terror in the region. Strong, brave and relentless Jallad is an important and timely book.
