On the killing of ex-Finance Minister SAMS Kibria in Grenade attack
Convenor of the United Peoples Democratic Front (UPDF) Mr. Prasit Khisha in a statement today, 28 January, strongly condemned the grenade attack on a Awami League rally at Habiganj of greater Sylhet district and expressed deep shock at the death of ex-Finance Minister SAMS Kibria and three others.
The UPDF leader termed the attack as preplanned and held the government responsible for it, saying the government has failed to punish the culprits responsible for the earlier bomb attacks on public gatherings. “The ambivalence of the government is contributing to the continuance of such heinous acts of violence”, Khisha commented.
