Dhaka: Three people have been killed so far in the attack by police and Awami League during the ongoing protest program of BNP. More than 2 thousand were injured, 200 activists were arrested.
BNP Secretary General Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir gave this information at a press conference at BNP Chairperson’s office in Gulshan on Sunday (September 4).
He said that Shaon was killed last Thursday by the police of Sheikh Hasina’s illegal, unelected, fascist government in Narayanganj. Awami terrorists and the police force of the illegal government carried out a hellish rampage in several districts including Ruhia Upazila of Thakurgaon District, Pakundia of Kishoreganj District on Saturday. About 25 leaders and workers were injured in the police and Awami terrorist attack in Ruhia upazila of Thakurgaon. In Pakundia upazila of Kishoreganj district, police and Awami terrorists attacked around hundred leaders and activists injured. The condition of two injured in police firing is critical.
Along with this information, Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir gave a brief description of the leaders and activists who were killed, injured and arrested during the BNP program from August 22 to September 1.
He said, according to the information received so far, three people have been killed and more than 2,000 activists have been injured across the country. More than two hundred were arrested at the same time. More than 4081 leaders and activists have been accused by name across the country. About 20 thousand unknown accused. Section 144 was issued in 20/25 places. Homes and businesses were attacked in about 50 places.
I am calling for an end to the brutality of killing, injuring and arresting anti-authoritarian, anti-fascist government party leaders and ordinary people across the country. Exemplary punishment of killers and attackers, release of unjustly arrested leaders and activists, withdrawal of false cases and return to democratic process.
Urging the law and order forces to protect the country’s constitution and protect the lives and property of the people impartially without acting as members of any party, the Secretary General of BNP further said that if the government does not stop this evil activity, the unity movement of the people will gradually turn into a mass explosion. And those involved in these misdeeds will be prosecuted by establishing a democratic government.
