BNP slams law and order ‘downslide’

WT24 Desk
Alleging that the country’s law and order situation has been on downslide, BNP on Friday said the incidents of robbery, killing, and sexual assaults on women have marked an alarming rise as during the post-1975 period.
‘Those returning from their village homes are saying killings, hooliganism, robberies have marked a sharp rise. The incidents of robbery are taken place in rural areas as happened during the post-75 period. Alongside the robberies, women are being sexually assaulted. This is an ominous sign,’ said BNP spokesman Asaduzzaman Ripon.
He came up with the allegations at a press briefing at BNP’s central office at Naya Paltan, reports United News of Bangladesh.
The BNP leader called upon the government to take necessary steps to improve the law and order situation and ensure the security of public life and their property.
Mentioning that the road transport and bridges minister Obaidul Quader had said the eid-trippers journeys will be safe, Ripon said the minister has failed to live up to his promise as many people are now killed in road crashes every day.
The BNP spokesman urged the government to release JCD president Rajib Ahsan who was arrested a day after Eid-ul-Fitr at Lebukhali ferry terminal on Barisal-Patuakhali Highway, enabling him to attend the BCL’s council. ‘Everything is possible by this government. We hope it’ll set Rajb free immediately.’
Ripon also urged the government to refrain from harassing and repressing the opposition leaders and activists by implicating them in ‘false’ cases.
