It calls for exemplary punishment for the perpetrators

The Transparency International Bangladesh (TIB) on Sunday demanded a judicial inquiry into the barbaric attack on Upazila Nirbahi Officer (UNO) Wahida Khanam of Ghoraghat in Dinajpur district.

TIB Executive Director Dr Iftekharuzzaman also urged the government to ensure exemplary punishment for those involved in the heinous attack.

In a statement, TIB also has strongly protested against the propaganda being carried out by a vested group saying that the attack on the UNO was merely a theft or isolated incident.

Iftekharuzzaman called on the government to take effective and visible steps to address the insecurity and mistrust risk posed by such attacks on top officials of the local administration.

 “The way such a shocking incident is being treated as a mere theft and an isolated incident based on the initial confession of a suspect is very disappointing and suspicious,” he also said.

He added that such an attack might have taken place due to the inflexible stance of the UNO in Ghoraghat Upazila against corruption and immorality in many issues related to khas land, illegal sand extraction and brick kilns.

 “The heinous attack has created a pragmatic risk of the crisis of public confidence to political parties and the administration,” Dr Zaman also added.
