Home Minister Asaduzzaman Khan Kamal on Wednesday said the authority is investigating the recent assault on a teacher in Narail to determine if the district administration had any negligence.

He was talking to journalists after a meeting at Bangladesh Secretariat to discuss law and order all over the country including industrial zones during the upcoming Eid-ul-Azha.

Asked about the humiliation of the teacher in front of the deputy commissioner and the superintendent of police of Narail, the home minister said, “We are really sorry for this sudden incident. Some agitated people insulted a teacher. Our DC and SP had taken measures immediately. However, I will inform you (Journalists) after getting the real information in details.”

In response to another question on killing a teacher by a student in Savar, he said police have already arrested the accused student’s father and will surely nab the alleged murderer. The culprit will be given punishment as per the law.

About the security of the Padma Bridge and motorcycle movement on it, the minister said, “No decision has been taken yet about the movement of motorcycles. The Roads and Highways Department will decide after discussion with the other organisations. Two new police stations have been set up on both sides of the bridge".

He said the authorities remain alert to prevent any sabotage on the bridge and CCTV cameras have been installed to monitor the whole bridge.
