In a statement posted on its Facebook page, it said one month after the killing of blogger Avijit Roy, “this vile aggression again calls for the EU to reiterate its strong attachment to freedom of expression, which constitutes an essential element of a democratic society”.
Ambassador Pierre Mayaudon also expressed his condolences to Babu's family.
Police are yet to crack Roy’s murder case.
Locals caught two madrasa students and handed them over to police immediately after the attack on Babu.
Islamists radicals have a history of attacking free-thinker bloggers and online activists in Bangladesh.
