All culprits of Nasirganar, Govindaganj incidents being brought to justice-Amu

Industries Minister Amir Hossain Amu today said the government has taken all measures to bring the culprits involved in the Nasirganar and Govindaganj incidents to justice.

"The incidents taken place at Nasirnagar, Govindaganj and Raipur are isolated, having no link with the law and order situation in the country," he said after holding the cabinet committee meeting on law and order at the Home Ministry's conference room.

Amu, also chairman of the committee, said there may be a possibility of links of the 'other quarters' with the Nasirnagar, Govindaganj and Raipur incidents. "Police has been asked to investigate into the matter, so that such incident does not take place again," he said.

He also said that the vested quarters might be involved with such incidents of attacking the minorities to destroy Bangladesh's image abroad, as they have failed to carry out militancy in the country.

Amu said the country's law and order is better now than it was in the past, adding, "We have rooted out militancy and destroyed the militant's all interlinks."

The industries minister said the government would not allow such incident anymore as all suspects are under surveillance of the police. He said the government formed a probe committee over the Narsingdi incident and punishment would be ensured against criminals.

"The killing, murder, abduction as well as overall crimes have been reduced and the law and order situation is under control," he said.

Chaired by Amu, the meeting was also attended among, others, by LGRD and Cooperatives Minister Engineer Khandker Mosharraf Hossain, Commerce Minister Tofail Ahmed, Shipping Minister Shajahan Khan, Information Minister Hasanul Haq Inu, Home Minister Asaduzzaman Khan, State Minister for Labour Mujibul Haque Chunnu, senior Home Secretary Dr Mozammel Haque Khan, Inspector General of Police AKM Shahidul Hoqueand representative various departments concerned.

On a query, the veteran Awami League leader said the land grabbers in Govindaganj used the Santal by settling them on the government lands for their own interest.
