Maulana Junaid Al Habib, central joint secretary general and president of Dhaka Metropolitan Hefazat-e-Islam, has been arrested from Baridhara Madrasa of Gulshan Police Station in the capital.
A joint team of Dhaka Metropolitan Police (DMP) Motijheel, Ramna and Lalbagh divisions arrested him around 4:30 pm on Saturday.
Confirming the arrest, DMP’s Joint Commissioner of Detective Police (DB) Mahbub Alam said there was a case against Hefazat’s Dhaka metropolitan chief Maulana Junaid Al Habib for creating violence and arson in the name of holding a rally at Shapla Chattar in 2013.
He added that he was also one of the accused in the case filed in connection with the recent violence in the Paltan area. “He has been arrested in those cases and taken to the DB office. He will be handed over to the court on Sunday for a 10-day remand,” said Mahbub Alam.
