Dhaka, Oct 4 (IBNS): Amid reports of IS involvements in the killings of two foreign nationals in Bangladesh, country's PM Sheikh Hasina rejected the presence of the militant group in the Asian nation.

Hasina was quoted as saying in a press conference by bdnews24.com: “Until now, IS or global terror groups like it have not been able to operate in Bangladesh. Our intelligence agencies are active... we will not allow any such activities in Bangladesh.”

She said the government has taken strong measures against homegrown radicalism and curved their activities.

Japanese national Kunio Hoshi was killed by unknown attackers on Saturday in Rangpur district.

Another  Italian aid worker Cesare Tavella was killed in Dhaka last week.
