BNP Standing Committee Member Moudud Ahmed has urged the government to form a judicial probe body to ensure justice over ‘extrajudicial killing’ during the countrywide anti-drug drive.
“The anti-narcotic drive is ill-conceived one. Immediately stop the drive being conducted to kill people and form a judicial probe commission headed by a retired Chief Justice to try the perpetrators of the killing,” he said while addressing a discussion at Jatiya Press Club in Dhaka.
The BNP leader said every single perpetrator behind the extrajudicial killing must be punished through the trial as per the report of the judicial probe commission.
He also raised question who has given the government the right to give licence to the law enforcers to kill people without any trial.
Mentioning that there is no rule of law and no elected government Moudud said the government is unlawfully killing people.
He alleged that no drug kingpins were arrested or killed in the drive and criticized the government for allowing ruling party MP Adur Rahman Bodi to go aboard amid the crackdown on drug peddlers.
