The BNP leaders demanded a neutral probe committee be formed to find out the people responsible for Sitakunda tragedy. In reply to a question over a neutral probe body, Mirza Fakhrul said a committee like the judicial commission does not function these days and a neutral body means formation of commission with experts who are non-partisan and not involved with the government.
