Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP) on Tuesday alleged that local ruling party MP and its big leaders are involved in the murder of Feni madrasa student Nusrat Jahan Rafi.
Speaking at a press conference at BNP’s Nayapaltan central office, party senior joint secretary general Ruhul Kabir Rizvi also alleged that the government is trying to hush up the incident to escape public wraths.“Awami League MP, its local unit president and other big leaders are involved in the barbaric killing of Sonagazi madrasa student Nusrat. Even, the SP and OC there abetted the ruling party men,” he said.
The BNP leader further said, “So, the government is trying to hide the incident to save the MP, their leaders and police administration from public wraths. The ruling party leaders turned the entire country into a rape valley.”
He also alleged that Awami League leaders and activists have long been on the spree of rape, repression and killing across the country. “Violence against women has now broken all the previous records as killings and women repression have now become the habit of ruling party men. The situation in the country is now even worse than that of 1972-75.”
Rizvi alleged that the government is not taking any step to check violence against women though awful incidents of repression on women are taking place regularly.
