The Inter-Services Public Relations Directorate (ISPR) has denied news reports that some army officers recently held a secret meeting in Dhaka to discuss a sensitive matter.
Indian daily The Telegraph on last Wednesday published a report claiming that 20 retired and serving officers met at the residence of a retired lieutenant general on October 21. The report mentioned multiple sources in Dhaka and New Delhi.
The details of the meeting's agenda was not provided in the report, but it was mentioned that a sensitive matter was discussed there. Voice of America Bangla Service later ran another news report citing The Telegraph.
ISPR Director General Lt Col Rashidul Hasan told the Bangla Tribune on Saturday that the report is baseless. “The news that was published in the Indian media is completely baseless.”
