Awami League General Secretary Obaidul Quader on Monday claimed that BNP Senior Vice-Chairman Tarique Rahman was behind the attack on Bangladesh High Commission in London and desecrating the portrait of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman on February. "The government has already informed the Interpol (International Criminal Police Organisation) to take action against those involved in the attack. Process is going on to take legal action and bring them back home," he said.
Quader, also Road Transport and Bridges Minister, was inaugurating a gate and naming of Shaheed ATM Jafar Alam Arkan link road of the 85-kilometre Cox's Bazar-Teknaf highway.
A Dhaka court on February 8 sentenced BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia to 5-year imprisonment and her son Tarique Rahman to 10-year in Zia Orphanage Trust graft case.
The Awami League General Secretary said no outsider is needed to tear BNP apart, rather BNP men are enough to do this.
Jafar Alam was killed by Pakistani occupation forces on the night of March 25 in 1971 at Iqbal Hall, now Zahurul Haque Hall, of Dhaka University. Born in Ukhia upazila of Cox's Bazar, Jafar Alam was the elder brother of incumbent Cabinet Secretary M Shafiul Alam.
