Being the largest political party in the country the BNP is not even for once saying that they would destroy the Aynaghar if they come to power and would compensate the victims of enforced disappearances. They are making a mistake

Recently a documentary ‘Aynaghar’ has been published on news portal Netra News that reveals that the victims of enforced disappearances are kept at a secret place called ‘Aynaghar’.

Regarding this Zafrullah Chowdhury said the Aynaghar needs to be demolished.

He also criticised the de facto opposition, Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP) in his speech.

“Being the largest political party in the country the BNP is not even for once saying that they would destroy the Aynaghar if they come to power and would compensate the victims of enforced disappearances. They are making a mistake. All the opposition parties in unison have to tell thepolice, all the policemen will face trial if they do not stop this,” he said.
