Will do everything to keep Sundarbans safe, says minister

Home Minister Asaduzzaman Khan Kamal yesterday warned that anybody attempting to commit any robbery in the Sundarbans will be published as the government will do everything to keep the mangrove forest safe. He was speaking at a programme at Sheikh Helaluddin Stadium, celebrating one year since Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina declared the Sundarbans free of robbers.
The Sundarbans was a dangerous place for tourists and those dependent on it, but it has been made free of robbers and criminal gangs, he said.
“The Sundarbans is a safe zone now. Thousands of tourists go sightseeing while those dependent on the forest are working without fear [of robbers],” the minister said.
Prime Minister Hasina on November 1 last year, declared the Sundarbans, the world’s largest mangrove forest, free of criminal gangs after the last remaining pirate gangs laid down arms. At that time, 58 pirates surrendered before the Home Minister in Bagerhat. The robbers who are still trying to commit robberies must be punished, the minister said.
“We’ve information about all the activities here and everyone will be brought to justice,” he said. “It’s our promise to keep the Sundarbans safe.”
