The BNP MP elected from Chapainawabganj-3 said that if the accused persons in these two cases were general people, nothing would have prevented the law from taking its course against them.
Pointing to Pori Moni’s incident, Harun said the renowned actress of Bangladesh has been seeking justice for four days following her attempted rape and assault at the Uttara Boat Club led by real estate businessman Nasir U. Mahmood.
“All media have published news in this regard. Is it false?” he questioned.

"Persons involved in this incident must be brought to justice,” Harun said.
Actress Pori Moni yesterday revealed the identity of the perpetrators who allegedly assaulted and attempted to rape her.
Pori Moni in a press conference last night claimed that Nasir U Mahmud, a former president of Uttara Club Limited, and a businessperson named Omie wanted to rape and murder her at the boat club on the Turag.
"They physically assaulted me and tried to kill me. Omie was also involved in the whole setup," she added.
Earlier yesterday, the actress posted about the incident on her verified Facebook page at 7:53 pm.
"To, the honourable Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina,I am Pori Moni. An obedient citizen of this country. I am a film actor by profession. I was physically abused. I am a victim of attempted rape and murder. I demand justice."
Pori Moni also said she went to Banani Police Station to lodge a complaint but they took no interest in documenting the incident.
On April 26, police recovered the body of the girl hanging from the ceiling fan in her bedroom. Her legs were touching the bed and both knees were a little bent.
A day after her family sued Bashundhara Group Managing Director Sayem Sobhan Anvir over abetting her death by suicide.
