In an event attended by the home minister in Pabna, 595 members of various outlawed leftist outfits have turned in weapons and surrendered themselves to authorities.

The surrender ceremony was held in Shaheed Aminuddin Stadium in Pabna town on Tuesday afternoon.

The men turned in 575 local weapons and 68 firearms of various kinds.

They came from several outlawed parties, such as Purbo Banglar Communist Party (PBCP) (ML-Red flag), Janajuddha, Purba Banglar Sarbahara Party, Kadamati Party, and local Naxalites.

Speaking at the event, Home Minister Asaduzzaman Khan Kamal said the government welcomed these persons who had chosen to return to a life of normalcy, leaving a dark path.

“During a previous Awami League term, in 1999, 2,000 outlaws surrendered to the government,” Asaduzzaman said.

Inspector General of Police Javed Patwary, local MPs, Pabna deputy commissioner and senior police officials also attended the event.

Among the outlaws, 132 are from Pabna, 80 from Joypurhat, 70 from Naogaon, 69 from Sirajganj, 60 from Rajshahi, 34 from Rajbari, 35 from Khulna, 31 from Tangail, 27 from Faridpur, 15 from Bogra, and two each from Jessore and Narail.
