Several involved in Cumilla incident identified: Home Minister
Home Minister Asaduzzaman Khan today said the members of law enforcement agencies have already identified several of those involved in the incident at a Cumilla temple.
"We think we'll be able to arrest them soon," he said while talking to reporters at his office in Secretariat after a meeting with top officials of law enforcement agency over the prevailing situation.
"Some of the suspects in the Cumilla incident have been detained. They are being interrogated… Several others who started violence in different places have also been detained," he said replying to a query.
"Those who practice religion, have faith cannot do such a thing. We believe it has been done to destroy the religious harmony existing in the country," he added.
The minister said they would deal with those instigating and starting violence, spreading rumour on social media following the Cumilla incident with an iron hand.
The instigators will be brought to book, the minister said.
