About the good governance in his own ministry, Kamal said all institutions under the home ministry including police, Border Guard Bangladesh (BGB), Coast Guard, Rapid Action Battalion (Rab), Ansar Battalion and others are being recast to make the effort successful.
"The law enforcing agencies are being revamped to ensure sustainable security for good governance," said Khan.
Describing the killing of BUET student Abrar Fahad inside his dormitory as 'unfortunate', he said, "The perpetrators have been held. They were too bright students, but we never imagined that they could be brainwashed like this. Investigators have been ordered to file the charges as soon as possible."
"The murder of Abrar was a tragic incident. We're surprised at it. Instructions have already been given to prepare a flawless charge-sheet in the killing case," he said.
