State Minister for Home Shamsul Haq Tuku on Monday said the law enforcers have been given directives to take legal actions against those involved in the election violence.
“They’ll be brought to justice after proper investigation,” the junior minister told over phone.
Tuku also ordered the law enforcers to find out those involved in torching polling centrers across the country and take legal actions against them.
BNP and Jamaat-Shibir men had a plan to unleash violence on the election day to foil it but they failed to do so due to tight security measures of the law enforcement agencies, he said.
Replying to a question over the post-election violence in Dohar on Monday that left five people dead, Tuku said, “We’ve already directed the law enforcers to stop violence. The supporters of the elected MPs will not be spared if those are found guilty.”
The law enforcement agencies have been given directives to keep strong vigilance to stop any kind of post-election violence across the country.
Nineteen people, mostly opposition activists, were killed in 11 districts as deadly violence broke out during the voting for the country’s 10th general election on Sunday.
