Claiming that the law-and-order situation in Bangladesh is better than many other countries of the world, home minister Asaduzzaman Khan on Sunday said the law enforcers are working with professionalism and efficiency.
‘Our law-and-order situation is better than many other countries of the world, and we’ve been able to control all kinds of anarchy as our law enforcers are working with professionalism and efficiency,’ he said after inaugurating a watchtower and digital access control system at the secretariat in the capital.
Asked about detecting an extremist hideout near the Prime Minister’s Office, Asaduzzaman said, ‘Our intelligence agencies are working well. More importantly, people don’t like extremism, and they provide information to the law enforcers whenever they come to know about extremists. And we’ve caught them as soon as we got information about them. Militants can take shelter anywhere in disguise, but our detectives are able to detect them.’
‘When there is unrest everywhere in the world, Bangladesh is safe,’ the minister added.
Meanwhile, Asaduzzaman Khan on Sunday assured journalists of taking necessary measures for denying to file a general diary against deputy inspector general and additional commissioner of Dhaka Metropolitan Police Mizanur Rahman for giving death threats to two journalists.
‘I will look into the matter of denial in registering general diary against DIG Mizanur Rahman on charges of threatening two journalists,’ he said.
