Dhaka– Detectives suspected that banned militant outfit Ansarullah Bangla Team (ABT) or other organization under its umbrella was involved in the killing of publisher Dipan and attack on another publisher and two writers.“Both the incidents were preplanned and ABT or other militant outfit under its umbrella were behind the two incidents,” Joint Commissioner (DB) of Dhaka Metropolitan Police Monirul Islam said.
Talking to reporters at his office on Sunday afternoon, he said it is not easy to foil targeted killing or targeted attack. It needs specialized or dedicated team to prevent such attack.
“However, we are trying to do our level best with the minimum equipment and manpower of DMP so that no such types of incidents can’t take place again,” he added.
The DB Joint Commissioner is optimistic that the killers and attackers will be arrested soon.
He requested the publishers to inform the law enforcers if they get any threat “Security measures have already taken for those publishers who already informed us about threats. We are trying to provide security after analyzing the threats.”
