Bangladesh Protests: Former Foreign Secretary hints at ISI involvement

    Bangladesh Protests: Former Foreign Secretary hints at ISI involvement

    Massive protests in Bangladesh have escalated into violence, with clashes between students, pro-govt supporters and armed police. Former Foreign Secretary Harsh V Shringla expressed concerns over ongoing violence stating possibilities of Pak’s ISI and others being involved in protests. New protests defied an order barring public meetings after nearly two dozen people were killed in earlier violence. Shringla hinted at Pakistani radical elements being involved in the blood-soaking violence. Several people died in fresh Bangladesh protests, despite authorities cutting mobile telephone services to quell unrest initially sparked by student anger. The protests have been driven by demands for reform of the country's quota system for civil service jobs. Quota reserves positions for specific groups, including descendants of freedom fighters of the 1971 War of Independence against Pak.
