Prime suspect of Cumilla mayhem changing whereabouts: Home Minister
Home Minister Asaduzzaman Khan today said the prime suspect of the Cumilla mayhem is frequently changing his whereabouts since he went into hiding following the incident on October 13.
"We hope we will be able to arrest him soon. We will definitely catch him and disclose his motive," he said in a programme titled 'Technological Modernisation of Rab' at the force's headquarters.
Several groups are trying to destroy the existing communal harmony in the country, he added.
The minister said five persons died -- one succumbed to his injuries at hospital today -- in Chandpur following the Cumilla incident.
"Whose purpose do these deaths serve?" -- he questioned.
The minister said a group with vested interest is circulating an old video footage of a murder in Dhaka's Pallabi by two youths as the killing of Jatan Kumar Saha in Noakhali.
"I'm warning those trying to gain advantage through spreading such rumours. We will certainly find them," he said.
