The Brahmanbaria district unit of Bangladesh Chhatra League on Friday warned that sedition cases will be filed against Hefazat-e-Islam leaders unless they apologise for lying about the violence.
They issued the warning at a press conference at the Brahmanbaria Press Club at 11:30 am.
Earlier on 5 April, Maulana Sajidur Rahman, the central Naib of Hefazat, visited the damaged Brahmanbaria Press Club and claimed that no one from his organisation was involved in the violence in Brahmanbaria.
However, Shahadat Hossain Shovon, general secretary of Brahmanbaria district Chhatra League, said at the news conference that Hefazat-e-Islam leaders had lied about the violence.
"No one of Hefazat was involved in the violence – we consider this statement to be a mere lie and an example of ill politics," he said.
Brahmanbaria Chhatra League President Rabiul Hossain Rubel demanded a judicial inquiry into the incident.
Besides, the BCL president demanded that those involved in the heinous massacre be arrested and brought to justice as soon as possible.
At least 14 people were killed and hundreds injured and government and private properties were damaged as the Islamist group locked into sporadic clashes with law enforcement agencies from 26 to 28 March in Brahmanbaria and other regions of the country during their protests and hartal over Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi's Bangladesh visit.
In Brahmanbaria, Hefazat activists set fire to renowned musician Ustad Allauddin Khan's memorial and vandalised Shaheed Dhirendranath Dutta Bhasha Chattar alongside government offices.
