The attack on Ghoraghat Upazila Nirbahi Officer (UNO) Wahida Khanam in Dinajpur was not a case of theft, but a planned attack, the Bangladesh Administration Service Association claimed.
The organization claims that the incident may have been carried out by some dishonest people to seek revenge after failing in illegal lobbying.
Helaluddin Ahmed, president of the Bangladesh Administration Service Association and senior secretary of the local government department, said this at a press conference at BIAM Auditorium in the capital on Saturday afternoon.
Secretary General of BIAM and Secretary of the Ministry of Public Administration Sheikh Yusuf Harun was present at the time.
Miscreants launched the attack on UNO Wahida Khanam and her father Omar Ali after entering UNO’s official residence on Wednesday night.
UNO was later admitted to Rangpur Medical College Hospital (RMCH) with serious injuries. She was later brought to Dhaka by helicopter for better treatment. She is currently undergoing treatment at the National Institute of Neuroscience Hospital in the capital.
Following the incident, joint forces of RAB and police launched an investigation. On Thursday, Dinajpur DB police detained the night guard Palash for questioning.
