Leaders of extremist Jamaat-Shibir, who got bails in arson attack cases, are now secretly trying to reorganize themselves for carrying out anarchies across the country again.

They are attempting to re-organize themselves by getting supports from some local ruling party leaders.

 Sources also claimed that these Jamaat-Shibir leaders are maintaining ‘good relations’ with some corrupt local police personnel, for ensuring their easy movement. 

Getting the information, the government high ups have already given special instructions to take necessary steps in this regard.

 Some police officials on condition of anonymity said released Jamaat leaders are trying to organize in all areas of the country again. They are doing these by ‘managing’ the local leaders of the ruling Awami League, intelligence sources said.

These Jamaat leaders have also ‘good relations’ with some local dishonest police personnel.  Islamic Chattra Shibir, student front of the extreme right wing political party, are also very active. However, they are most active in Dhaka, Rajshahi, Rangpur and Chittagong division. 

Getting this dangerous information, government high ups special ordered law enforcing agencies to  take necessary measures after investigation.
