166 nabbed for Ramu rampage
No room for instigators of communal hatred: MKA
→ Staff Correspondent
Additional police were deployed around the Buddhist temple at Sabujbagh of the capital on Monday following acts of violence in Ramu upazila under Cox’s Bazar on Saturday night. sun photo
Law-enforcers rounded up 166 persons from different parts of Chittagong and Cox’s Bazar Monday under a massive hunt for miscreants for arson attacks on Buddhist temples and houses in Ramu upazila.
Of them, ninety-three people were detained from Cox’s Bazar and the rest from Chittagong.
Home Minister Mohiuddin Khan Alamgir made the disclosure to journalists after the inauguration of a training programme at the Armed Police Battalion (APBn) headquarters in Uttara.
Unidentified miscreants vandalised and torched a Buddhist neighbourhood in Ramu, Cox’s Bazar, on Saturday night.
During the mindless mayhem, century-old seven Buddhist shrines and 30 houses were set afire and more than a hundred houses allegedly vandalised.
Hours afterwards, similar attacks were also launched on Hindu temples and Buddhist monasteries in Chittagong’s Patia area on Sunday noon and in Cox’s Bazar’s Ukhia in the evening.
Shortly after the rampages, the district administration imposed section 144 on any gathering for an indefinite period in Ramu and Ukhia.
Suspecting Myanmar’s Rohingya refugees staying in Cox’s Bazar to be involved in the attacks, the government has already
ordered law- enforcing agencies to keep a close watch on their movement, the minister said.
Replying to a query, he also warned that the government would strongly deal with those who want to spread venom of communal hatred in the country.
“All law-enforcement agencies have already been strongly instructed to remain on high alert against any such malicious activity in the country,” the new home minister said.
