Hasina also mentioned that the government has already removed the high officials of the local administration, Rab and police.
“The government isn’t sitting idle,” she asserted. Chandan Sarker’s wife Archana Sarker said that they have the firm belief that the Prime Minister could ensure the punishment of all the culprits.
She also expressed their gratitude to the Prime Minister for the steps that have been taken so far by her government.
