Home minister: No conflict between RAB, police

Home Minister Asaduzzaman Khan Kamal reassured that there was no conflict between police and Rapid Action Battalion (RAB). “RAB is a part of the police department. They may not agree on one or two issues but that is nothing to be publicised,” he told journalists while visiting an art competition at Shilpakala Academy in Dhaka on Friday.

He said, “There was no misunderstanding between the two forces. It is almost like two siblings having minor problems. We are not worried about it.” In recent reports in the media, allegations emerged that some members of the police force had hindered the elite force’s personnel in discharging their duties. Later, Director General of RAB Benzir Ahmed had wrote to Senior Secretary of the Home Ministry Mohammad Mozammel Haq Khan about the matter.

On Thursday, the Inspector General of police (IGP), AKM Shahidul Hoque echoed the same when he was asked about the matter. Although he admitted the police department had received a complaint from the RAB which, he said, is being scrutinised.

“If RAB wants to make a complaint against the police, it will have to complain to me [the IGP], not directly to the home minister,” IGP Shahidul told a media briefing at the police headquarters.

According to reports, the RAB DG wrote in the letter that if no action was taken in this regard immediately, major untoward incident may take place between the two forces. This might also taint the image of the police department.
