Home Minister Asaduzzaman Khan Kamal has said that the government is taking help to get data from the authorities of Facebook, the social media platform, to identify the real culprits involved in Bhola clash.

He said that investigations were going on to take punitive actions against the perpetrators who unleashed violence in Bhola using the Facebook.

The government will get information from Facebook authority within next two or three days, he told journalists at his ministry office on Monday.

The minister urged the countrymen to have patience and wait as the law enforcement agencies had already filed case and arrested Facebook user and the alleged hacker to this end.

Kamal said a section of people are out to create unstable situation in the country by spreading propaganda.

Earlier on Sunday, violence erupted in Bhola killing four people and wounding around hundred others over a screenshot from a Facebook account user Biplob Chandra Shuvo (actual name is Biplop Chandra Baidya).
