Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina on Thursday said if BNP does excesses, its chairperson Khaleda Zia will be sent back to jail.

“We've given her (Khaleda) scope to stay in her house, suspending her sentence on humanitarian grounds. If BNP does excesses, we will send her back to jail,” she said.

The premier was addressing a discussion arranged by Awami League at Bangabandhu International Conference Center in Dhaka on the occasion of Jail Killing Day.

Awami League General Secretary Obaidul Quader delivered the welcome speech while party presidium members Sheikh Fazlul Karim Selim, Engr Mosharraf Hossain and Mofazzal Hossain Chowdhury Maya Bir Bikram, Central Committee Member Parvin Zaman Kalpana, martyred Syed Nazrul Islam's daughter Dr Syeda Zakia Noor Lipi, and Dhaka South and North Awami League presidents Abu Ahmed Monnafi and Sheikh Bazlur Rahman spoke at the event.

Awami League Publicity and Publication Secretary Abdus Sobhan Golap, MP, and his deputy Aminul Islam moderated the discussion.

The day is observed to remember the four national leaders, Syed Nazrul Islam, Tajuddin Ahmed, Captain M Mansur Ali and AHM Quamruzzaman, who were assassinated inside Dhaka Central Jail on November 3, 1975.

The massacre happened barely three months after anti-liberation elements assassinated Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman and most of his family members, on August 15, 1975.
