There are no arrests of politicians in the country and neither are they being harassed in any manner. Only those who are terrorists, criminals and those who have cases against them are being arrested by police.
This was said in a speech by Police Inspector General (IGP) AKM Shahidul Haque at a program on Thursday afternoon at Bahubul, Habiganj, in answer to a question by media journalists at a program to open a police information centre at Potijori union.
Indicating that no innocent or helpless people were being arrested or harassed by police at the present mass arrest drives, the IGP said, “Those are talking about harassment are talking while sitting in their homes. Police are not the ones who are going to their homes (to arrest or harass them). If police had harassed them, then their mouths would become shut.”
