Death threat to Minister through SMS
Civil aviation and tourism minister GM Quader Tuesday received death threat through a cell phone short text message service.
‘I can’t suspect anyone at this moment, but there might be some quarters unhappy with my actions related to ministry works,’ the minister told New Age adding that he was not at all worried.
The text message began with an old English proverb and asked the minister to get prepared for death.
‘Time and tide wait for none. But one person wait[s] for you. Do you know who is he? He is Azrail. He must come and take your zaan (life). So, be careful. It is high time,’ reads the message sent from a GrameenPhone number.
A Jatiya Party leader and a minister of the Awami League-led coalition government, Quader asked his personal staff to lodge a general diary with Uttara police station.
