Tarique Rahman interrogated by London police


London police have interrogated Tarique Rahman in relation to his involvement with the attack on Bangladesh Embassy in London. Police went to Tarique`s residence at 5 pm on Monday.

The police, however, did not reveal any information regarding the hour-long interrogation session, but a senior official informed that the interrogation process is still not over yet.  The BNP branch in London issued a press release on Monday apologizing for the attack on Bangladesh embassy after Tarique Zia was interrogated by the Police. Under United Kingdom law, such an apology and forgiveness is considered with importance. This reduces the importance of pardoning the offender.

On February 7, BNP activists and supporters vandalized Bangladeshi Embassy in London, UK. London police detained 5 people from the scene in connection with the attack. The perpetrators admitted that this incident was done on Tarique`s order. On behalf of the Bangladesh Embassy, a formal complaint was issued against the offenders of the incident.

After that incident, British Foreign Minister came to Dhaka. In a private meeting, the Bangladeshi Prime Minister expressed her anger over the attack on the Bangladesh Embassy in London and hoped that the accused will be punished for the crime.
