BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia today blamed Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina for the death of militant suspect Golam Faizullah Fahim in the name of “crossfire”.
“Fahim was killed in a state-managed drama. Police said Fahim was killed in crossfire, but actually it was not crossfire. He was just killed,” Khaleda said at an iftar party at a hotel in Dhaka.
On June 17, Fahim, who was on a 10-day remand in connection with the attack on Madaripur college teacher Ripon Chakraborty, was killed in a reported gunfight between his associates and police in Madaripur Sadar.
Pointing to countrywide criminal activities, the BNP-led 20-party alliance chief said it was “Chhatra League, Juba League and a section of police” who were behind these criminal activities.
Bangladesh Labour Party, a component of the BNP-led 20-party alliance, organised the programme.
