Shipping Minister Shajahan Khan on Friday claimed that BNP joint secretary general Salahuddin Ahmed himself went into hiding to evade arrest.
“It’s true that the government was looking for Salahuddin to arrest him. But he could not be found because he himself went into hiding,” he said while addressing a views-exchange meeting with the representatives of bus and truck owners’ associations of different districts at the deputy commissioner’s office in the town.
“Salahudding has been in the hideout to evade arrest,” he said adding that the government has engaged its efforts to find him out.
The Shipping Minister also observed that a quarter has been trying to mount pressure on the government by hiding Salahuddin and airing news items on the issue in TV channels.
The views-exchange meeting was also addressed by Information Minister Hasanul Haq Inu, Kushtia deputy commissioner Syed Belal Hossain and superintendent of police Prolay Chisim.
