Alleged arrest of Fakhrul and Abbas

BNP Secretary General Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir and the party’s Standing Committee member Mirza Abbas have been alleged to have been detained.

Shayrul Kabir Khan, a member of BNP’s press wing, said that the police arrested them at around 3 am on Tuesday (December 9).

Quoting Mirza Fakhrul’s wife Rahat Ara Begum, Shairul Kabir Khan told the media that members of the intelligence police had arrested the two top leaders of the party from their homes. DB policemen came to Uttara’s house around 3 pm and said that they are detaining Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir on the orders of the high level of the government.

He also said that detective police members have arrested Mirza Abbas from his house in Shahjahanpur, Dhaka.

However, it was not possible to get a statement from the police on this matter so late at night.

Incidentally, the BNP is scheduled to hold a mass rally in Dhaka on Saturday (December 10) after the nine divisional assemblies of the country. BNP wanted to hold this rally in front of the party’s central office in Nayapaltan. Police allowed them to rally in Suhrawardy Udyan. However, the DMP and BNP had reached a consensus about holding the rally not in Suhrawardy Udyan, nor in Nayapaltan, Kamalapur Birshrestha Shaheed Sepahi Mohammad Mostafa Kamal Stadium and Mirpur Bangla College ground. On Friday, the news of the arrest of the top two leaders of the party came in the middle of the matter being resolved.
