A probe-body has been formed, he said

Home Minister Asaduzzaman Khan Kamal on Sunday said that action will be taken into the incident of death of a retired army officer allegedly in police firing at Cox’s Bazar marine drive after investigation as a probe-body has already been formed to look into the matter.

“We have already formed a probe-body. When the probe report would come, it will be known what has happened. At this moment, I don’t want to make any comment as it could have an impact on the investigation,” he told journalists at his residence in Dhaka.

Asked whether any police officer has been suspended, the minister said talks are going on but every move will be taken after the investigation.

Police sources said Sinha Rashed Khan, a retired major in the Bangladesh Army, was coming to Cox’s Bazar from Teknaf in his private vehicle with another person around 10:30pm on Friday.

When police halted his vehicle and attempted a search, an altercation ensued. Police then opened fire as the army officer brandished his pistol. The army officer was seriously injured and was taken to Cox’s Bazar Sadar Hospital where on-duty physicians declared him dead.

About the celebration of Eid-ul-Azha, Kamal said the religious festival has been celebrated in a peaceful and safe manner as no untoward incident took place anywhere in the country, thanks to the restless efforts of the law enforcement agencies.

“Ferry ghats witnessed a huge pressure of people . . . we have been bound to stop ferry operations at Mawa ghat due to the heavy tide of Padma river and erosion for the safety of people,” he added.

About the claims of IS responsibility over the recent blast incident at Pallabi police station, the minister said it was a speculation as the militants did the sabotage and carried out the propaganda.
