PM Hasina asks Bangla forces to exercise restraint


Bangladesh opposition leaders questioned the government in Dhaka over the ongoing conflicts on the Rakhine (Myanmar)-Bangladesh border.

In response to a question raised by Mujibul Huq Chunnu, the opposition chief whip in Jatiya Sansad, law minister Anisul Huq informed the Parliament that Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina had instructed the Bangladesh armed forces including  Border Guard of Bangladesh (BGB) to remain patient regarding the conflicts on other side of the border.


Two individuals, including a woman, were killed due to artillery shells exploding inside Bangladesh recently as a result of the current conflicts in the Rakhine region. The gun fighting in western Myanmar compelled many Bangla families to  flee from their places.


Speaking on behalf of the home minister, Anisul Huq added that Dhaka was observing the situation closely and necessary steps will be taken in need.


He also informed that  78 Myanmar border guard police personnel  entered Bangladesh, where some of them sustained injuries. They were kept in a school and those injured were admitted to the hospital. He also informed that necessary instructions were given to initiate dialogues with Myanmar agencies to send them back.

"If we cannot send them back, the next course of action will be taken," he added.

Meanwhile, the Bangla government ordered the closure of all schools near the Myanmar border.


Lately, the number of border guard police personnel fleeing to Bangladesh has increased to 113, reported by The Daily Star newspaper.
