Law enforcers in Bangladesh continue their anti-militancy operations across the country in 2017 following the government’s vow to show “zero tolerance” against terrorism and militancy.
Law enforcers claim arrest of a top militant of Jama’atul Mujahideen Bangladesh (JMB) in connection to the hotel blast in Dhaka's Panthapath area on August 15 last year.
Law enforcers start drive against militancy and terrorism in the remote char areas of four districts for the third consecutive day today.
Mentioning that Bangladesh has set an example in the world with its success in curbing terrorism and militancy, Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina stresses the need for continuing the trend so that militants cannot use the soil of this country.
Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina seeks wholehearted cooperation of people in eliminating terrorism, militancy and drug addiction from the country.
The government will undertake a project to intensify anti-militancy campaign across the country, Religious Affairs Minister Motiur Rahman tells parliament.
