Home Minister Asaduzzaman Khan Kamal has said that the use of lethal weapons is being stopped at the border.
“Bangladesh-India is a fraternal country,” the minister said while speaking as the chief guest at a function organized by RAB-13 on Tuesday to distribute winter clothes at the eastern part of the Dharla river in Kurigram.
Asaduzzaman Khan said those who are on the other side of the border (India) have good relations with the people of this side (Bangladesh) for various reasons. Many may cross the border “without knowing” which should not be done. As a result, one to two incidents took place from time to time.
Regarding the initiatives taken on to stop border killings, the Home Minister said that discussions have been held between the Home Ministers of the two countries and at the BGB-BSF level. It was decided in the talks that “border killings would be stopped and lethal arms would not be used”. Even then, some incidents are taking place from time to time. “Everyone is sincere about preventing such incidents,” he added.
Later, Home Minister distributed winter clothes among more than one thousand needy people.
State Minister for Primary and Mass Education Zakir Hossain, Kurigram-1 MP Aslam Hossain Saudagar, Kurigram-2 MP Panir Uddin Ahmed, Kurigram-3 MP MA Matin, RAB Director General (DG) Abdullah Al-Mamun and others were present on the occasion.
