Dhaka Metropolitan Police (DMP) Commissioner Md Asaduzzaman Mia on Tuesday confirmed that there was no security threat ahead of the pronouncement of August 21 grenade attack verdict.

The DMP boss came up with the assertion while addressing in a scholarship giving programme among brilliant students at Rajarbagh Police Auditorium here in the capital today.

“There is no scope to hamper security centring the pronouncement of the verdict,” he said.

DMP Commissioner Md Asaduzzaman Mia, however, also warned saying: “Any form of anarchy will not be tolerated centring the verdict of the August 21 grenade attack cases.”

Dhaka 1st Speedy Trial Tribunal is set to pronounce its much-awaited judgment tomorrow (Wednesday) in two cases filed over the August 21 grenade attack on an Awami League rally in the capital in 2004.

On September 18, a speedy trial tribunal here in the capital fixed October 10 to deliver its verdict in the cases.

Judge Shahed Nuruddin of the Speedy Trial Tribunal-1 has fixed the date after conducting hearing the concluding arguments while the hearing of the two cases have taken place simultaneously at Dhaka 1st Speedy.

The prosecution started placing arguments before the tribunal in connection with the two cases on October 23.

The grenade attack was carried out on an anti-terrorism rally arranged by Awami League at Bangabandhu Avenue in the capital during the BNP-Jamaat alliance's rule, aiming to kill then opposition leader Sheikh Hasina on August 21, 2004.
