Govt eliminating opposition men: Fakhrul
BNP acting secretary general Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir today alleged that the government was using joint forces to conduct extrajudicial killings of many leaders of the opposition alliance.
“The government has chosen the path of forced disappearance, murder, torture and harassment in order to suppress the opposition and to establish one-party rule in the country,” Fakhrul claimed in a statement issued by the party this evening.
In the statement, the BNP leader also said that the law enforcing agencies could not avoid responsibility for the murder of Golam Rabbani, Nilphamari union-level organising secretary of the party.
He claimed that members of joint forces picked up Rabbani from Panchagarh.
Rabbani, 35, the prime accused who attacked on the convoy of the then Awami League MP Asaduzzaman Noor, was found dead in Nilphamari Sadar upazila this morning.
Five people including four local Awami League men were killed when activists of Jamaat-e-Islami and its student wing, Islami Chhatra Shibir, attacked the motorcade of Noor, also a noted actor, on December 14.
