All offenders to be hunted down, says home minister

Mentioning that many of those involved in the arson attack on the houses of Hindu community members in Rangpur were identified scrutinising video footage, Home Minister Asaduzzaman Khan on Thursday said some of them have already been arrested, reports UNB. “The rest are being hunted down by members of law enforcement agencies,” he said while talking to reporters after a meeting on the security arrangement for the Victory Day at the Home Ministry.  The minister also said they have ensured so that no innocent person is harassed over the incident.

Over a Facebook post reportedly made by Titu Chandra 'demeaning' Prophet Hazrat Muhammad (PUBH), several thousands people from nearby villages marched towards Hindu-dominated Thakurbari village on November 10 last, and vandalised and torched 8-10 houses. Replying to a query about arrested Titu Chandra Roy, whose Facebook post 'hurting the Muslims' religious sentiments' triggered the agitation and resulted in the arson attack on the houses of Hindu community members, he said the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) of police is examining his handset. “If Titu's involvement is found, action will be taken against him.” Replying to another question, Asaduzzaman said the investigators came to know that Titu has been living outside Rangpur for the last four years. “I think there was a deep-rooted conspiracy behind the arson attack. However, I can't elaborate before completion of the investigation,” he said.
