DHAKA, July 23, 2018 (BSS) – Awami League (AL) General Secretary Obaidul Quader said today they would take stern action against the attackers on Mahmudur Rahman, acting editor of the daily Amar Desh.
“The incident of Kushtia (attack on Mahmudur) is an isolated one. Those involved in the attack would be brought to justice after finding them out,” he said after attending the pre-shooting ceremony (mohorot) of a movie “Jam” at Dhaka Club auditorium here.
He asked the police personnel to remain alert to stop recurrence of such incident in the days to come, saying, “I have already held talks with the Inspector General of Police (IGP) and requested him to find out the people responsible for the attack.”
Quader, also Road Transport Bridges Minister, said, “The AL doesn’t believe in such politics. There might have many opinions and there are newspapers, televisions and other medium to express their opinions.”
“We, on the one hand, have ordered to take action against the attackers on Mahmudur, but on the other hand the BNP is trying to save their people involved in the crude bomb attack in Rajshahi and ransacking and setting ablaze to the AL office in Sylhet,” he added.
