Home Minister Muhiuddin Khan Alamgir yesterday blasted BNP chief Khaleda Zia for questioning his role during the Liberation War.
“She [Khaleda] has no right to question my role during the Liberation War,” said the home minister while talking to journalists after attending a governing body meeting of Police Staff College at Mirpur-14 in the capital.
Addressing a rally at Karwan Bazar in the city earlier in the day, the BNP chief called the home minister a “razakar”. She claimed that Muhiuddin had served the erstwhile Pakistan government until its last day.
Muhiuddin yesterday said had the opposition leader changed her stance of opposing the war crimes trial, it would have been better for her as well as the nation.
On the killing of journalist couple Sagar-Runi, the minister said the progress of investigation into the killing would be made public soon.
Sagar, a news editor of TV channel Maasranga, and his wife Runi, a senior reporter of ATN Bangla, were brutally killed in the early hours of February 11 at their flat in the capital's West Rajabazar.
Journalists of different associations had been demonstrating since then demanding trial of the killers.
