Home Minister Asaduzzaman Khan Kamal has brushed aside BNP’s allegation that the government was behind Tuesday’s attack on the party’s student front Jatiyatabadi Chhatra Dal (JCD) on Dhaka University campus.
“These are political tactics, many people spread such propaganda. There is no truth in these,” he said while responding to a question from a reporter at the Secretariat.

The home minister’s comment was sought on BNP Secretary General Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir’s remark that the government carried out a planned attack on JCD in the Central Shaheed Minar area.
Fakhrul was referring to a clash between activists of JCD and pro-government Bangladesh Chhatra League (BCL) that left at least 35 people injured earlier in the day.
