>Hasina at terror risk, again

>SECURITY and intelligence agencies last month warned Awami League (AL) President Sheikh Hasina of possible attempts on her life by extremist groups including Harkat-ul-Jihad-al-Islami (Huji) and Jama’atul Mujahideen Bangladesh, Julfikar Ali Manik writes quoting sources concerned.
It was at that time Special Security Force (SSF) assumed the responsibility of ensuring her security, they added.

Meanwhile, security measures for Hasina have been stepped up following news by an Indian television network that Huji has unleashed a six-member suicide squad to kill the former prime minister.
SSF Director General (DG) Major General Ashraf Abdullah Yussuf told The Daily Star yesterday, “We often receive such leads and none of those is less important to us. We have taken extra safety precautions for Sheikh Hasina like we do each time after we have such information.”

However, sources close to the administration said the news prompted the government high-ups to discuss the matter immediately.

General Ashraf communicated it to the chief adviser, home adviser, home secretary and top officials of law enforcement and intelligence agencies.
He said he has been assured of all-out cooperation to put in place foolproof security arrangements for Hasina and the other VIPs.
The law enforcement and intel agencies were examining the authenticity of information that came up in the story on fresh threats against the AL chief.
