“The BNP demands that the government to form a probe body headed by a former chief justice to investigate the seven killings,” he said while talking to reporters after placing wreaths at the mazar of late President Ziaur Rahman at Sher-e-Bangla Nagar in the city.The BNP leader also criticized the government to call the family members of the seven murders in the Narayanganj at the Prime Minister’s Office (PMO) on Wednesday, the day BNP chairperson Khaleda Zia is scheduled to visit the troubled district to express her sympathy to the family members of the seven murder victims.
“It cannot be considered as a political gesture. It is the political culture of the Awami League. They do not want to allow opposition parties to carryout their programme ,” he added.
He further said that Khaleda’s programme was a pre-scheduled one but the prime minister has called the family members of seven murders victims to her office on the same day that cannot be a political culture. The attitude of the AL does not bear any decency,” he added.
The BNP spokesman along with party leaders and activists placed the wreaths at the mazar of Ziaur Rahman to mark the release of Secchasebok Dal president Habibunnabi Khan Sohel. Sohel was freed on May 7 from Kashimpur prison.
He questioned again the necessity of the elite force3 Rapid Action Battalion.
“The government has been using members of RAB for carrying out killing, forced disappearance and abduction. Question has arisen out in the minds of people now as to whether there is any necessity of existence of RAB,” he said.
The BNP leader said now it is clear as to who were involved with the abduction and murders of seven people.
He further alleged that the government is now trying to cover up the Narayanganj incidents.
He said the steps so far taken by the government to deal with the Narayanganj incident are not satisfactory.

Rizvi said the BNP also stage demonstration at upazila level on May 18, district level on May 19 and city level on May 20 protesting implicating Khaleda Zia in “false cases” and transferred her cases at Alia Madrasha ground.
