Sheikh Russel Krira Chakra Limited has strongly condemned the repeated attempts to assassinate Bashundhara Group Managing Director Sayem Sobhan Anvir, who is also the chairman of the sports club, and demanded immediate arrest of the conspirators.

The club leaders made the demand at a press conference at the Dhaka City Football Committee office at Bangabandhu National Stadium in the capital on Tuesday. They also sought neutral investigation into the incident to mete out exemplary punishment to the perpetrators. 

Mentioning that they will meet the home minister as soon as possible, the club leaders said they will go wherever they need to go to realize their demand. Director-in-charge of Sheikh Russel Krira Chakra Limited Ismat Jamil Akhond Lablu read out a written statement at the press conference.

Foiling an attempt to kill the Bashundhara Group managing director, police on Friday arrested a young man, Saiful Islam Saad, who initially confessed that he tried to kill the country's business tycoon at the order of a influential politician of Chattogram.

Immediately after the arrest, the youth also confessed to police that he was given a good amount of money to accomplish the mission to kill the Bashundhara Group MD. A Dhaka court on Sunday placed him on a three-day remand to grill him.
