Grenade Attack Case

BNP alleges camera trial of Tarique

BNP acting Secretary General Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir yesterday alleged that the government wants to keep Tarique Rahman away from the next parliamentary election by sentencing him through a camera trial in the grenade attack case.
“Government fears Tarique Rahman as he created a new dimension in politics through politics of development,” he said at a discussion in the city's Institution of Engineers, Bangladesh organised by BNP marking the third anniversary of Tarique's jail release day.
Tarique was arrested on March 7, 2007 on charge of corruption and released on September 3, 2008 on bail. Later he went to UK for medical treatment.
Alamgir said the government could not prove a single allegation against Tarique but they implicated his name into the grenade attack case using a false statement given by Mufti Hannan.
BNP leaders MK Anwar, Nazrul Islam Khan, Selima Rahman and Amanullah Aman also spoke at the discussion.
