Nine prominet citizen of Bangladesh gets death threat reported Dhaka Tribune.
An anonymous letter sent by post to the Dhaka Tribune contains death threats to nine prominent personalities including a Supreme Court Justice.
Dhaka Tribune received the letter postmarked Mohammadpur Sub-Post Office On Sunday afternoon. But the sending date is not clear.
The letter, written in Bangla, does not contain the name of any organisation or a sender. On top of the letter are the proclamations 'Naraye Takbir' on the left and on the right 'Allahu Akbar'.
After that a line that reads: “Your death sentence is final. Execution will be carried out any time.”
Then a list of nine prominent personalities are listed: International Crimes Tribunal judge Justice Nizamul Haque, tribunal prosecutors Dr. Tureen Afroz and Advocate Rana Dasgupta, pro-war crimes trial activists Dr. Imran Sarker and Kamal Pasha Chowdhury, Azadur Rahman Chandan, Shagor Lohani, Islami Oikya Jote faction Chairman Misbahur Rahman Chowdhury and Moulana Farid Uddin Masud, the Imam of Sholakia.
Police were notified of the letter. Deputy Commissioner (media) Masudur Rahman of Dhaka Metropolitan Police said the law enforcement agencies were taking necessary steps in this matter.
This is not new to Bangladesh. However, on previous occassion we observed that police took this kind of threat lightly. As a result few bloggers got killed including Avijit Roy.
