Bangladesh Army Chief of Staff General Moeen U. Ahmed Saturday said that 'an evil force' wanted to destabilize the situation in the country but its designs were frustrated.
Moeen made the comments following massive student demonstrations in the capital and five other major cities from Monday to Wednesday Gen. Moeen, who was addressing a meeting in flood-hit Shariatpur town, 60 km south of Dhaka, said 'an evil force taking the cue from a trifling incident in the Dhaka University campus on Aug 20 wanted to create anarchy'.
However, the army chief said, 'the design could not succeed as we were vigilant. Their plan to destabilize the situation and undermine the government has been frustrated.' He said the intelligence agencies were investigating to find out the 'evil force engaged in creating anarchy and undermining the image of the government'.
