Fakhrul links rise in crime to corrupt, politicised police

BNP Secretary General Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir on Tuesday alleged that the law and order situation in the country has deteriorated as police officers are rather busy indulging in politics and corruption.

“Murder and rape incidents have increased in the country. The law and order situation has deteriorated ominously. A councillor’s husband has been shot dead in public while an ordinary student also died as an innocent bystander in the incident. Such incidents are happening every day,” Fakhrul said, referring to the sensational killing of AL leader Zahidul Islam Tipu, who was the husband of Farhana Islam Doly, councillor of wards 1, 11, 12 (Motijheel area) of Dhaka South City Corporation.

Speaking as the chief guest at the biennial council of BNP’s Sylhet district at the Registry Ground in the city, Fakhrul said police is indifferent to curbing crimes and maintaining the law and order.

“Police force is supposed to maintain the law and order, but they are busy doing politics and indulging in corruption,” he observed.
