The Prime Minister’s Office today dismissed Indian media reports claiming there was a plot to assassinate Bangladesh Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina last month.
“The reports are confusing, motivated and baseless,” said a press release signed by Mohammad Ashraful Alam, deputy press secretary to the premier.
The PMO requested the media to “exercise caution and judgement in distributing such confusing information that goes against the interest of national security”.
According to the report that quoted four intelligence sources from Bangladesh and India, six to seven personnel of the Special Security Force (SSF) were preparing to attack Hasina on August 24.
