Home Minister Asaduzzaman Khan Kamal on Monday said that those who were involved in attacking a naval officer in the city would not be spared.
He made the remarks while speaking to reporters at his residence in Dhanmondi on Monday about the attack on a Navy official.
“None will be spared. Those who will commit crimes will be punished no matter who they are or whether they are public representatives, everyone has to face the law,” said Asaduzzaman Khan.
We are taking the matter seriously, he added. Meanwhile, a case has been filed against Irfan Selim, son of MP Haji Selim, for attacking Lieutenant Wasif Ahmed Khan of Bangladesh Navy at Dhanmondi in the capital on Sunday night.
As per the case statement, a private car hit Lieutenant Wasif’s motorcycle near Labaid Hospital around 7:45 pm when he and his wife were returning to their residence in Mohammadpur from Nilkhet.
Later, some people came out of the car and physically assaulted the navy official. They also verbally abused his wife, the navy official alleged.
Following the Home Minister’s statement, members of Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) conducted a drive at the Old Dhaka residence of Haji Selim and detained his son Irfan and Irfan’s bodyguard Zahid on Monday afternoon.
