Security was beefed up at Chittagong court building after a bomb threat was received from an anonymous caller this morning.
The caller told a lawyer, Manas Kumar Das, that the building would be blown away by the banned militant outfit Jama’atul Mujahideen Bangladesh (JMB), Mohiuddin Selim, officer-in-charge of Kotwali Police Station, told The Daily Star.
Manas Kumar is an executive member of Chittagong Bar Association, the OC said. “He received the call around 9:15am today. The caller spoke in local Chittagong dialect.”
As part of security measures, additional police were deployed and people were being frisked carefully before allowing entry into the court building, the OC added.chittaogng-court-building.jpg
