Dhaka: The home minister, Asaduzzaman Khan Kamal, on Friday said the Gulshan attack masterminds will be arrested anytime soon.
“We have identified the masterminds of the Gulshan restaurant attack. The police are hunting them. They will be arrested soon,” said the minister while talking to reporters after attending a programme in the capital.
The minister also alleged that there are political patronisations behind the Gulshan and Sholakia militant attacks. “The attacks were carried out under the leadership of those who used to do politics of Jamaat and Shibir and who had patronised Baghmara’s Bangla Bhai.” The minister attended a discussion on ‘Target August: Dhanmondi to Bangabandhu Avenue’ organised by ruling Awami League’s (AL) student body Bangladesh Chhatra League at the Krishibid Institution auditorium.
Addressing the discussion, AL MP AFM Bahauddin Nasim claimed that those who killed country’s founding father Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman in 1975 conspired to kill Sheikh Hasina through the 21 August grenade attack.
