The recent US sanctions on Rab and its seven current and former top officials are politically motivated and one-sided, said Awami League General Secretary Obaidul Quader yesterday.

No member of Rab is above the law and at least seven Rab men were sentenced to death in connection with an incident in Narayanganj, said Quader, also the road transport and bridges minister.

Rab itself and the ministry concerned investigate and take action whenever there is an allegation against a Rab employee, he told reporters at his office. 

Rab is working professionally to fight militancy and the decision by the US will encourage militancy and terrorism in Bangladesh, he said.

"The United States is talking about human rights today. We request them to review the human rights situation in their country," Quader said.
