By mentioning the status of minority torture and the sufferings of them throughout different districts, the District Commissioners (DCs) are sending letters to the Cabinet Division and State Ministry. Having received those letters the related divisions of the Govt. have become astonished. Apparently the Local Leaders of the Ruling party have been condemned for the Minority Torture by those letters. Besides the enhancement of the security level of the Minority dominated areas is also requested. By this time the DCs of Sathkhira, Dinajpur, Jessor and Bagherhat have sent their letters regarding the Minority issue. Immediately after getting those letters, a team led by Dr. Gahor Rijvi, the Foreign Affairs Advisor to PM, and C Q K Mustak, Senior Secretary of the State Ministry, has started for going to the affected area. But they returned back by not reaching the destination due to densely foggy weather. Many sources have confirmed that the DC of Jessor, Md. Mustafijur Rahman, has sent letter with descriptions of the affected area. He also confessed that he sent the letter.
The Letter to transfer the charges related with the Minority Torture issue to the Quick Trial Tribunal: the charges and related documents of the incidences of arson, vandalizing, looting of houses and business shops etc. over the Minority people are ordered to send to the Ministry of State urgently which could be tried in the Quick Trial Tribunal. The letter, signed by the Deputy Secretary Mijanur Rahman of the Ministry, regarding this issue was sent to the Police HQ, all Division Commissioners, Police Commissioners, DIG, District Magistrates and Police Supers via the Law wing of the Ministry. In this letter it has been urged to send related documents of the incidences of arson, vandalizing, looting of houses and business shops etc. over the Minority people.
Letter to Law Ministry to set up the Tribunal: to ensure the judgments of the charges of torture over the Minority, another letter has also been issued by referring the Secretary of the Law Ministry to set up the “Special Tribunal of Preventing the Torture over The Minority” within the shortest possible time. In this letter it has been said that the incidences of arson, vandalizing, looting of houses and business shops etc. over the Minority people must be considered under the Special Tribunal. It has to be mentioned that after 15th August, 1975 the decision of set up a Special Tribunal was taken. After an urgent meeting of C Q K Mustak, Senior Secretary of the State Ministry, with the officers of the Law Wing of the Ministry, the decision has finally been taken.
