A case has been filed against Rajshahi district unit BNP Convenor Abu Sayeed for threatening to kill Awami League President and Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina in a speech on May 19. 

The case was filed under the Anti-Terrorism Act, 2020, by local Awami League leader Abul Kalam Azad at Puthia police station on Sunday. 

Rajshahi Range DIG Abdul Baten said police are conducting operations to arrest the accused Abu Sayeed.

Meanwhile, at around 12:30am on Monday, a local BNP member, Golam Mostafa Mamun told Dhaka Tribune that police only raided Abu Sayeed's home. He has not been arrested yet. 

The ruling Awami League has announced processions and rallies across the country in protest against the incident.

Awami League Office Secretary Biplab Barua issued a press release in this regard on Sunday.

Party General Secretary Obaidul Quader has asked all members of the Awami League and its affiliated organizations to stage protests in response to the death threat, issued by Rajshahi district unit BNP Convenor Abu Sayeed Chand during a rally.

A video of the BNP leader's speech went viral on Sunday. 

He said there will be no 27 points or 10 points. The only demand is to send Sheikh Hasina to the grave. 

“We will do everything needed to force her to resign, InshaAllah,” Abu Sayeed said.
