To return to the path of normal life more than six hundred extremists of south-western region's 15 districts have surrendered.
The extremists surrendered to Home Minister Asaduzzaman Khan Kamal by handing over their arms at around 3 pm on Tuesday at a program organized by Pabna district police at Shaheed Amin Uddin Stadium.
After being involved in the life of terrorism the outlaws were isolated from their family members. There was no peace in their uncertain lives. So they have decided to return to the normal life.
In the program Home Minister Asaduzzaman Khan Kamal said, those who joined the extremist organizations after being misguided, now they are surrendering in response to Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina's call. All including pirates, drug peddlers and extremists are surrendering one by one. Do not compare our police force with the force of ten years back. Because the law enforcement agencies of Bangladesh are very efficient. None can do terrorist activities by dodging their eyes. Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has provided financial grants for the people who have surrendered. These people will be allowed to return in normal life through ensuring legal assistance.
More than six hundred extremists of 22 groups from Rajbari, Khulna, Satkhira, Faridpur, Bagerhat, Jashore, Pabna, Natore, Sirajganj, Bogura, Rangpur, Joypurhat, Naogaon and Tangail districts surrendered in the program.
There are cases in connection with murder, robbery, explosives and arms filed against the surrendered outlaws. They are police listed terrorists. Their regular cases will continue though they have surrendered.
