State Minister for Shipping Ministry Khalid Mahmud Chowdhury on Sunday said the government declared zero tolerance against rape alongside other crimes. 

He made this remark while responding to a question from reporters after a meeting with Chief of Naval Staff Vice-Admiral Mohammad Shaheen Iqbal at the Secretariat today. 

Khalid Mahmud Chowdhury said, " The last three-term government led by Sheikh Hasina have not given any chance to the criminals. We have not hidden anything from the embezzlement of bank money to those involved in rape and other crimes. We have brought them before the people and under the law. The present government has zero tolerance in this regard." 

He further added that the government is strict to play the role as  all the criminals  will be brought under justice. The law minister has already said that this (violence against women) law is being tightened.
