Security measures beefed up ahead of Jamaat strike

  • Published at 07:57 pm November 22nd, 2015

Security measures were beefed up across the country after Jamaat-e-Islami announced a general strike for today in protest at the executions of war criminals Salauddin Quader Chowdhury and Ali Ahsan Mohammad Mujahid. 

After the strike was announced, law enforcement officials were put on alert yesterday to avert any possible subversion attempt. Police said they were ready to ward off any untoward situation.

Deputy Commissioner (media) of Dhaka Metropolitan Police Muntasirul Islam told the Dhaka tribune police had dealt with critical situations for several days before the two war criminals were hanged and they would be vigilant for the next few days. 

He said any attempt to perpetrate violence would be foiled as security had been tightened. 

A sense of apprehension gripped people after BNP leader Salauddin and Jamaat leader Mujahid were sent to the gallows inside Dhaka Central Jail amid tight security early yesterday.

They feared that violence would flare after the executions of the two key leaders of two parties.

Several people told the Dhaka Tribune yesterday that there could be violence as that had been the case in the past when death-row war crimes convicts were hanged.

Laila Kazi, a private university teacher, said executions of Salauddin and Mujahid meant victory for the country’s independence.
