Bangladesh Police Service Association (BPSA) on Thursday said the Bangladesh Police and Army will work together for the welfare of the country and the countrymen.
In a statement, the association said, a group of people with vested interest are disseminating misinformation on social media and various electronic and print media centring the killing of the retired army major Sinha Md Rashed Khan in police firing. They are trying to influence and interrupt the legal proceedings of the case.
The attempt to create hostility among the country's two important forces is very unfortunate, the statement added.
"Bangladesh Police and Army worked together in various crisis moments of the country in the past, starting from the Liberation War, various natural disasters, and in the organisation of national elections. We believe that the police and the army will continue working together, maintaining the continuity of the past," it read further.
Major (retd) Sinha Rashed Khan was shot dead by police at Shamlapur check post in Baharchhara union on Cox's Bazar-Teknaf Marine Drive on the night of August 31.
Later, the army chief and police chief visited the spot and exchanged views with the local officers of their respective forces and gave necessary instructions to this end.
They vowed that those involved in the killing of Sinha would be brought to justice through proper trial.
They also said they have instructed their respective forces to make sure that the investigation will be conducted in a completely unbiased manner and that it will be free from the interference of any sort.
