Dhaka, July 19 (ANI): Bangladesh Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina on Tuesday directed security forces to gain expertise in using modern technology to fight terrorism and militancy as terrorists are now using upgraded technology to carry out attacks.

"We are observing that the pattern of terrorism and militancy has changed, as use of technology in terrorism and militancy has been increased. So, I call upon the every force to achieve capability in using modern technologies side by side with receiving training to tackle the twin demons," the Daily Star quoted Prime Minister Hasina, as saying.

"For this, I think that every force will have to acquire knowledge in using and practising modern technologies," she said and assured that her government would do whatever necessary to end terrorism.

The Prime Minister gave the instructions while addressing the 30th anniversary function of Special Security Force (SSF) at the International Conference Centre of the Prime Minister's Office (PMO) in Dhaka.

"I want that Bangladesh would never lag behind in any field ... we would take steps so that every security force earn capability in using modern technologies," said Prime Minister Hasina. (ANI)
