Quader, also Awami League’s presidium member, said the plot to murder Joy, the only son of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina, is the latest blueprint to wipe out Bangabandhu’s future clan, and this was revealed as police raided through Shafik Rehman’s residence to find out for related documents earlier in his presence.
