Online Desk : Home Minister Asaduzzaman Khan Kamal has said an inquiry committee has been formed to investigate the incident of killing of an Army Major by police in Cox’s Bazar.

“An inquiry committee has been formed. It would not be appropriate to say anything else before publishing the committee’s report. Comments would be made after an impartial inquiry,” he said while addressing a press conference at Dhanmondi in the city on Sunday.

He said a three-member committee has been formed at the directive of the prime minister to investigate the killing of a former Army officer. The committee comprises of a representative of the Cox’s Bazar deputy commissioner, a representative of the Bangladesh Police and a representative of the Bangladesh Army.
“We have also fixed their time-limit. We will show our reaction after an objective inquiry into the incident. If we make comments on the matter, it will influence the investigation. So, I don’t want to say anything right now in this regard.”

The Home Minister said whatever you term it–accident or anything else. But, an incident has happened. There is nothing to deny it. The government is determined to punish the culprit identifying the causes behind it. “Whatever you journalists have learnt, please keep it in yourselves. Please let me keep inside me whatever I have learnt,” he said.

Replying to a question of journalists, the Home Minister said, “As far as I know, he has not yet been suspended. However, talks are going on. It also depends on the inquiry committee. Decision will be taken after an objective inquiry. We’ll be able to learn after inquiry that how much right or wrong he had done.”
