New Director General (DG) of the Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) Benazir Ahmed on Monday claimed that he did not speak against politics and politicians rather against killing, terrorism and vandalism.
“How could killing, terrorism and vandalism be part of politics? It is our responsibility to save the people from these acts”, the DG RAB said this at a press conference at RAB Chittagong headquarters in the afternoon on the day.
Benazir came up with the remarks in the backdrop of ongoing countrywide violence and destructive acts by BNP-led 20 party alliance.
The RAB chief said the country is now passing through a critical juncture as innocent people are being burnt to death and state properties destroyed but the common people want to get rid of these sufferings.
“A vested quarter is trying to negate the rights of the people by waging war against them. We have been working to free the people permanently from this sinister force” he added.
The RAB chief also said the law enforcement agencies would continue their efforts to keep safe the linkage between Dhaka and Chittagong for smooth transposition of goods-laden vehicles on the highway.
Additional DG of RAB (Operation) Colonel Zaiul Ahsan, Chittagong Metropolitan Police (CMP) Commissioner Abdul Jalil Mandal and RAB Chittagong Zone Director Lieutenant Colonel Miftah Uddin Ahmed, among others, were present at the press conference.
Earlier, the RAB DG held a meeting with the officials of Chittagong police and public administration at the same venue. –Our Monitor
