Govt may ask for Interpol help in probe
The government might request Interpol's support in quizzing suspects of the Pilkhana massacre who are now abroad, said Commerce Minister Faruk Khan yesterday.
He said the investigators are now questioning suspects and will interrogate more people at home and abroad.
The minister, who is assigned to coordinate activities of the Prime Minister's Office and probe bodies regarding the Pilkhana massacre, was talking to journalists after a function celebrating the silver jubilee of ActionAid Bangladesh at the National Museum.
Asked about allegations of political harassment in the name of questioning, he said, "I think only those who had a hand in the BDR mutiny are making these allegations."
Faruk said, "A few more days are needed to complete a fair and impartial probe into the BDR killings."
