Home Minister Asaduzzaman Khan Kamal has said that the blacklisted fundamental organisation ‘Allahar Dal’ will be banned soon.

The home minister was addressing a dialogue organised by Secretariat Reporters’ Forum (BSRF), a platform of newsmen in the secretariat beat, in the capital on Sunday.

“We always banned militant outfits. Now ‘Allahar Dal’ will be banned soon, he said.

In a query about journalist couple Sagar-Runi murder case, Kamal said that the investigation had reached almost its peak. “Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) is investigating the case and I think they are now at their final stage of the report,” he said.

On February 11, 2012, miscreants killed news editor of Masranga TV Sagar Sarwar and his wife and senior reporter of ATN Bangla Meherun Nahar Runi at their residence of West Rajabazar in the capital’s Sher-e-Bangla Nagar area.
