'They will not spared if they try to destabilize the country'

Dhaka Metropolitan Police (DMP) Commissioner Asaduzzaman Mia has said they have phone records of many noted people who tried to create anarchy during student protests for safer roads.

“You have already heard audio clips of many so-called noted people who tried to incite violence during the protest in an aim to destabilize the country. We have audio records of many more of them,” he told a press briefing at the DMP media centre on Saturday.

School and college students across the country took to the streets for several days demanding safe roads following the deaths of two college students on the Airport Road in Dhaka on July 29.

The protest ended up with violence as police and alleged leaders and activists of the ruling Awami League and its student wing Bangladesh Chhatra League attacked the demonstrators, where scores of protesters were injured.  

Social media was flooded with rumours and propaganda during the movement.

Asaduzzaman said on the third day of the protest a vested quarter started spreading propaganda and rumours to try to create unrest. He said many school uniforms were sold in markets and fake ID cards were also produced during the time.

Replying to a query the DMP chief said he could not provide the exact number of people arrested for spreading rumours.

“We have identified those who tried to create anarchy and destabilize the country and arrested many of them. Efforts are underway to identify the others.

 “We will not spare those who tried to divert the situation cashing in on the student protests,” he said, adding that all the incidents including quota protest, movement against VAT on private universities and unrest through 2013, 2014 and 2015 were similar.
