‘Such daylight attack unprecedented in world’


Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has said that a day before the August 21 grenade attack a large box was delivered by a truck to the father-in-law`s house of Tarique Rahman.

Some people wearing burqa were seen there. Tarique then used to live in his in-law`s house. He was there for nine months.

The prime minister said, "I ordered an Awami League leader to investigate the matter. He said he would look over the matter the next day. But the attack was done before he investigated the matter.`

She said this while addressing a gathering at the end of paying homage to the martyrs of the grenade attack on the temporary altar of Bangabandhu Avenue at 10:30 am on Monday.

She also said that the police did not help the people who were attacked on that day. Rather, Awami League activists were batoned mercilessly and tear-shells were fired at them. The police let the attackers flee.

Terming such daylight attack as unprecedented in the world, the prime minister said that not only the Awami League leaders but also the foreigners were not saved from BNP`s terrorism on that day.
