According to rule, the government must endorse a sedition charge before a case is filed in this regard.

“The government has already cleared the way to file a sedition charge against Aslam,” the IGP said after a programme at Rajarbagh Police Lines in Dhaka this afternoon.

Aslam was hatching the conspiracy in exchange of money, Haque added.
