‘Local administration not to blame’

He was replying to the reporters queries after attending the closing ceremony of parade of Border Guard Bangladesh’s 81st batch at Border Guard Training Centre and School in Satkania of Chittagong.

The home minister also informed newsmen that the government is dealing the Ramu violence with utmost priority.

“Whoever is responsible for the mayhem would be brought to book,” he said.

A mob went on rampage in Ramu of Cox’s Bazar in the night of September 29, leaving 12 temples and monasteries and over 50 houses destroyed.

The violence was apparently triggered by a Facebook posting of a photo derogatory to the holy Quran.

About alleged police inaction, the home minister said a 4-member administrative body has been formed to investigate the matter.

Legal steps will be taken against the local law enforcers if the probe body finds any irregularities against them, he said.

About the investigation of journalist couple Sagar-Runi murder case, the minister reiterated his hope that the motive behind the killing would be unveiled by October 10.
