No security threat in Bangladesh

Says home minister
STAFF REPORTER, Dhaka

Home minister Asaduzzaman Khan has said that there is no security threat in Bangladesh following Sunday's terror attack in the Sri Lankan capital of Colombo. However, law enforcement agencies are prepared to tackle any untoward incident. Khan was talking to reporters after visiting Awami League leader Sheikh Fazlul Karim Selim at his residence in Dhaka’s Banani area yesterday (Monday).

Selim’s grandson Zayan Chowdhary was among 290 people killed in the suicide bomb blasts in Colombo. The home minister visited Selim’s family to offer his condolences. “We do not have information that such attacks can happen here. Nevertheless, security agencies are on alert,” said the minister. "We have handled the

Holey Artisan attack successfully, and now we have no red alert or security threat in our country. The people of Bangladesh do not support terrorism,” he added.

The police have heightened vigilance across the country following the series of bombings in Colombo.

Sources said security has been tightened in churches and diplomatic zones of Bangladesh. They have been put under special supervision of law enforcers.

Special prayers were offered in churches for those killed in Sunday’s bombings.

There is no threat of sabotage following the spate of attacks in Sri Lanka, said Md Sohel Rana, assistant inspector general of police at the police headquarters.

“The police are on alert. We had taken additional security measures for Shab-e-Barat and Easter Sunday,” he said in the message to the media.

The series of bombings in Sri Lanka, targeting churches and hotels, that have left at least 290 dead, come a month after the mosque shootings in New Zealand’s Christchurch.
