escape routes have been closed. Moazzem can't escape anywhere and he'll be

madrasa student Nusrat Jahan Rafi.

About DIG Mizanur Rahman, the minister questioned why he (DIG Mizan) gave

bribe to the ACC official? Bribery is an offence for both, who gives and

receives bribes. Mizan has certainly a weakness for which he wants to cover

by giving bribe, he said.
