Home Minister Asaduzzaman Khan Kamal on Sunday assured journalists of taking necessary measures over alleged rejection of pleas to register general diary (GD) against Deputy Inspector General (DIG) Mizanur Rahman for giving death threats to two journalists.
"I will look into the matter of denial in registering general diary against DIG Mizanur Rahman on charges of threatening two journalists," he said after inaugurating the Digital Access Control System and Observation Tower at the Secretariat in Dhaka.
DIG Mizanur, who also until recently served as an additional commissioner in Dhaka Metropolitan Police, is currently under scanner for allegedly abducting a woman at gunpoint and then forcibly marrying her.
"The law and order situation in the country is better than any other parts of the globe as the law enforcement agencies have been working relentlessly with help of the commoners," he said.
Replying to a question on combating militancy, the minister said: "Law enforcement agencies have been working with utmost sincerity and professionalism to put an end to this end."
"The people of the country do not favour militancy and they inform the law enforcers soon after getting any information leading to radicalism which is helpfully towards combating the menace," he added.
