Play neutral role to trace foreigners’ assailants, BNP to govt

Thereport24.com Desk:

BNP senior leader Abdullah Al Noman on Wednesday feared that the assailants of two foreigners may remain untraced for lack of neutrality of the government.

“There could be killings in any country, but if the government doesn’t play an impartial role, then the third party who carry out the killings remains unidentified,” he said.

Noman, a vice chairman of BNP, came up with the remarks at a discussion arranged by Narayanganj district unit Jatiyatabadi Tanti Dal at the Jatiya Press Club.

Japanese citizen Hoshi Kunio was shot dead in Rangpur on October 3, five days after the killing of an Italian citizen Cesare Tavella in Dhaka's Gulshan area.

Referring to the murder of journalist couple Sagar-Runi, Noman said though the then home minister had said the culprits would be arrested within 24 hours, they are still at large. “As police couldn’t arrest the killers within 24 hours, they won’t be able to do so this time, too. Because, the perpetrators remain in the dark with the government’s backing. So, the administration won’t dare to arrest them.”

He also accused the government of creating various obstacles to their party overhauling process. “They (govt) are not allowing us to exercise our minimum rights to hold rallies and meetings.”

Noman said the government is unwilling to allow people to exercise their right to franchise fearing a massive debacle. “People never get defeated in a democratic movement. Our movement against misrule and repression of the regime will must be successful.”
