TIB protests ‘theft’ claim

Transparency International Bangladesh (TIB) on Sunday demanded that the government launch a judicial investigation into the heinous attack on Ghoraghat Upazila Nirbahi Officer (UNO) Wahida Khanam.

They called upon the government to ensure exemplary punishment for the assailants involved in the gruesome attack.

In a media statement, TIB also strongly protested against the claim that the motive for the attack was theft.

TIB urged the government to take effective steps to address a sense of insecurity created after such an attack on one of the top officials of the local administration.

TIB Executive Director Dr. Iftekharuzzaman said, “The way such a shocking and grisly incident is being labeled as an isolated incident is very disappointing and dubious.”
