Vested quarter using rumours as tools to gain interest: IGP
Inspector General of Police (IGP) Dr Mohammad Javed Patwari today said a vested quarter is spreading rumours over child lifters as tools to gain interest.
“Law and order is not deteriorated in the country,” he told journalists after paying homage to the mausoleum of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman here.
Deputy Inspector Generals (DIGs) of Police M Habibur Rahman and Khandker Muhit Uddin and Superintendent of Police in Gopalganj District Mohammad Saidur Rahman Khan were present.
The IGP said, “We have taken prompt measures over the recent incidents and criminals were arrested within a short time.”
He said recently some innocent people were killed in mob beating at different places as locals suspected them child lifters,” he said, adding “We have successfully tackled it. Police will not tolerate such types of incidents.”
“People are now understood that those were fully rumours and a vested quarter spread rumours for gaining their ill interest,” Dr Javed mentioned.
Earlier, the police chief paid respect to the mausoleum by placing wreaths and offered special munajat after reciting Fateha.
He also sought eternal peace of departed souls of Bangabandhu and his family members who were brutally killed on August 15, 1975.
