Stressing the importance of justice, Home Minister Asaduzzaman Khan Kamal on Friday said the police personnel who have connections with crimes will be punished as no one is above the law.

"If anyone in the police force commits a crime, he or she must be punished as the law is equal for all," he said.

The home minister came up with the remarks responding to a question from reporters during a food distribution program organized by Awami League’s Dhaka north unit on the occasion of National Mourning Day on Friday.

Kamal’s tough remarks came as the involvement of several police officers was found in various offences and crimes in recent weeks.

Among them, the alleged relationship between Gulam Saklain, Additional Deputy Commissioner of Dhaka Metropolitan Police (DMP), and arrested film actor Pori Moni sparked an outcry in social media and drew the attention of the whole country.

There have been much talks when a rape case was filed against Superintendent of Police (SP) Moktar Hossain of the Police Bureau of Investigation (PBI) by a female police inspector and the arrest news of six DB police officers of Feni district for snatching gold bars from a businessman.
