Police yesterday filed a sedition case against BNP leader Aslam Chowdhury for allegedly hatching a conspiracy with Israel’s Likud Party and its intelligence agency Mossad to oust the government.
The case was filed with Gulshan Police Station in the evening, said Sheikh Nazmul Alam, deputy commissioner of the Detective Branch of Dhaka Metropolitan Police.
AKM Shahidul Hoque, inspector general of police, said Aslam had a financial contract with Likud Party politician Mendi N Safadi for trying to topple the government.
Police have evidence of Aslam’s involvement in the conspiracy, he told reporters yesterday afternoon after attending a programme at Rajarbagh Police Lines.
“We’ve quizzed him on remand. The information given by him clearly suggests that he was involved in anti-state activities.
“While conspiring, they [conspirators] contacted Likud Party and Mossad to oust the government through creating anarchy in the country and making the government unpopular,” the police chief added.
