Even party members will not be spared for involvement in lynching

Road, Transport and Bridges Minister Obaidul Quader has said the Home Ministry is taking stern action to stop mob lynching incidents in the name of capturing kidnappers, across Bangladesh.

"I have spoken to the home minister about this, and he told me that they have taken a strong position to stop the repetition of such incident," the minister said at a press briefing held at the secretariat on Monday. 

Quader said: “Police have taken every single lynching incident seriously, and have been investigating to bring the culprits to justice.”

If any party member is found involved with such incidents, they would also not be spared, he added.
