Senior Awami League leaders have urged the government to take legal action against BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia for hatching conspiracy against the country and the recent killings of foreign nationals.

“The government should take legal steps when BNP chief Khaleda Zia returns home from London. She [Khaleda] and her son [Tarique Rahman] have led the killings from London to create anarchic situation in the country,” Publicity and Publication Secretary Hasan Mahmud said at a programme in the capital yesterday.

He alleged that Khaleda and Tarique had planned the killings of Italian citizen Cesare Tavella and Japanese Hoshi Kunio to unseat the government. “The investigation is under way and the killers will be held soon,” the former minister said while speaking at a discussion organised by Syed Mohsin Ali Memorial Academy and Jatiya Mashik, a monthly magazine.

Earlier, party President and Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina alleged that the BNP-Jamaat alliance resorted to killing of foreign nationals as they failed had uproot the government in the name of anti-government in the last two years. She also binned reports of Islamic State claiming responsibilities for the murders.

At the event, Food Minister Quamrul Islam yesterday alleged that Khaleda and her son along with Jamaat-e-Islami were plotting to remove the government from power. “For this reason, they are instigating killing of foreigners to put the government under pressure internationally.

“Anyone involved in the killings will not be spared,” he warned.
