Apart from the ministry officials, top brasses of different law enforcement agencies are expected to attend the meeting, the ministry official told The Daily Star on condition of anonymity.

The two back-to-back attacks in Bangladesh within July’s first week revealed that the attackers were students of privately-run universities and emotionally detached from their families.

Now, after the attacks, the government has launched several programmes to curb militancy.

Currently, there are a total of 95 privately-run universities in Bangladesh. Of these, 80 universities are running their academic activities and curriculum.
