Attorney General Mahbubey Alam said, BNP Acting Chairman Tarique Rahman was awarded life term imprisonment in the 21st August grenade attack case. It won’t be hard to bring him back to the country.

He said these to the newsmen while discussing the matter at his office on Thursday.

Mahbubey Alam said, it is being said that Tarique Rahman is the master mind of 21st August grenade attack. We will review the verdict. If we find that he should be given the death penalty then we will appeal to increase the punishment.

He said, copies of verdict are supplied to the people awarded death sentence. If they would file appeal then it will come to the High Court as death reference. In that case for the state we will take steps for hearing as soon as possible. But there is a process of preparing paper book which is the matter of the court. We will take our steps in the hearing of the appeal.

Mentioning that one Pakistani national was awarded punishment in the case, the Attorney General said, we still can predict that Pakistan has not stopped its effort to harm Bangladesh, to create vacuum in the leadership of Bangladesh. By this time Pakistan has involved in terrorism. In that case we have succeeded to curb militants including JMB. There is much doubt regarding that convicted Pakistani national.
