The dismissed Deputy Attorney General Emran Ahmed Bhuiyan has sought refuge at the US Embassy in Dhaka citing security reason.
However, Bryan Schiller, Spokesperson of the US Embassy, expressed his inability to provide any information regarding the issue.
“We don’t have any information to offer,” he told media on Friday.
Sources at Police Headquarters said the DAG returned home in Lalmatia from the US Embassy this evening.
Earlier, Emran Ahmed in a message to media said he took shelter in the US Embassy with his entire family.
He said, “Today I have been dismissed. In the last four-five days, I have been threatened through Facebook Messenger and WhatsApp. The government repays love with imprisonment. I do not have a US visa.”
The DAG came to the discussion on September 4 when he refused to sign a statement of Attorney General office against Nobel laureate Prof Dr Mohammad Yunus. The AG issued the statement protesting an open letter of global figures to Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina requesting for halting trial proceedings of the cases against Mohammad Yunus.
Law Minister Anisul Haque announced the dismissal of Emran Ahmed on Friday morning.
