A lawyers’ forum leader in Chittagong has been threatened with death in a text massage on his mobile phone purportedly sent by banned militant outfit Ansarullah Bangla Team.
Chittagong Bars Association’s former general secretary Ashok Kumar Das said he received the SMS at around 7:30am on Wednesday.
The message also said the next targets were war crimes tribunal’s prosecutor Rana Dasgupta and Ekushey Award-winning social science teacher and Premier University Vice-Chancellor Anupam Sen.
“The sms was sent from 01876214694, but I found the number switched off when called back,” Das told bdnews24.com.
The SMS reads “Mr. You and your family are our target from tomorrow. Dr Anupam
Sen/Rana Dasgupta, you all are Indian agent. Ansarullah Bangla Team.”
A complaint has been lodged over the matter, said Kotwali police OC Jasim Uddin.
