Anti-drug drive

BNP accuses govt of extrajudicial killings

Staff Reporter

The BNP has accused the government of carrying out extrajudicial killings in the name of taking measures against drug peddlers.

"People are being killed in “crossfires” across the country in the name of anti-drug drives. Ordinary citizens, including civil society members and political activists, are in a state of panic," said BNP secretary general Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir yesterday.

He was talking with journalists at his village home in Thakurgaon.

Fakhrul said around 30 people were killed in "crossfires" within a span of a few days in the name of anti-drug drives.

Speaking at a meeting, BNP standing committee member Dr Khandaker Mosharraf Hossain also accused the government of carrying out extrajudicial killings in the name of drives against drug peddlers. He said action should be taken against “drug barons”.

Jatiyatabadi Muktijoddha Dal, an associate organisation of the BNP, arranged the meeting at the Jatiya Press Club to mark the 37th death anniversary of party founder Ziaur Rahman.

The BNP leader said yaba and phensidyl were not produced in Bangladesh and thus these could be prevented from entering the country, if the government willed so. He claimed that Awami League leaders were involved in drug peddling.

Meanwhile, speaking at a press conference, BNP senior joint secretary general Ruhul Kabir Rizvi yesterday claimed that the jail room of Khaleda was unliveable.
