Govt to take action against those involved in plot to kill Joy: PM


Prime minister Sheikh Hasina on Monday said the government will definitely take action against those who will be found involved in the conspiracy of killing Sajeeb Wazed Joy after abduction.
‘We must take action against those who will be found involved in the conspiracy,’ she told a discussion meeting at Krishibid Institution, Bangladesh.
Awami League organised the programme as part of its two-day programme on historic Mujibnagar Day, reports United News of Bangladesh.
The prime minister said the government always takes steps whenever it sees any unjust activity. ‘We never encourage unjust activity and will never do it either,’ she asserted.
The prime minister’s strong remarks came following the arrest of journalist Shafik Rehman.
Detectives on April 16 arrested Shafik Rehman, an adviser to BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia, from his residence in the city’s Eskaton Garden on over a case filed previously over a plot to abduct and kill Sajeeb Wazed Joy, the IT adviser and son of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina.
Police also showed Amar Desh acting editor Mahmudur Rahman arrested in a case filed in connection with the plot.
Coming down heavily on a section of people making various comments and condemning the arrest of Shafik Rehman, Sheikh Hasina, also the Awami League chief, said the names of these came from US court and inquiry by their intelligence agency.
‘Now they (those who are condemning the arrest) are seeking justice. My question is whom do they want the justice from?’ she said.
About the arrest of Shafik Rehman, former editor of Jai Jai Din, she questioned those who saw the journalist, but they did not judge the misdeeds that journalist has done. “This didn’t happen in Bangladesh…it happened in the USA, and their intelligence and court have unveiled this conspiracy.
