The minister hinted at the involvement of a third party in the violence over Durga Puja

The Comilla incident was planned for destroying the communal harmony of the country, said Home Minister Asaduzzaman Khan.

"It appears to us that it was a motivated act instigated by a vested group," he said while talking to reporters at the secretariat on Sunday.

He also smelled provocations by 'a third party' in the sporadic violence in the country over Durga Puja. 

Asked about the reason behind the Comilla incident, the minister said, "We'll make it public once we get all the evidence and those who were involved in it will be given exemplary punishment." 

 "Not only in Comilla, attempts were also made to destabilize the country through communal violence in Ramu and Nasirnagar," he said. 

"The people of Bangladesh are religious but, not fanatic. We never allowed militancy and terrorism on the soil of Bangladesh. We contained militancy and terrorism through united efforts," the minister said. 

Soon after the Comilla incident, four lives were lost at Hajiganj in Chandpur and some policemen were also injured, he said, adding some small incidents also occurred in Noakhali, Cox's Bazar and Feni districts. 

"No incident has been reported since Saturday night. Our security forces are working with patience and we work on intelligence information. Those who are trying to destroy communal peace will not succeed," said the minister. 

Regarding BNP's allegation over government's involvement in the Comilla incident, the minister said these statements are not based on facts as those are motivated ones.
