Health Minister Mohammed Nasim on Tuesday warned the police administration that they must arrest the killers of slain Hindu priest Anando Gopal Ganguly or quit the job.

Speaking on the occasion, Information Minister Hasanul Haq Inu said no leniency will be there for any killer. “The gallows are ready for each of the killing,” he said.
The rally was presided over by Naldanga union unit Awami League president Irfan Ali Biswas.
