Held Hizb ut men not first-timers in arrest

This is not the first time that the five alleged Hizb ut-Tahrir Bangladesh members, arrested by Rapid Action Battalion (Rab) on Friday when they brought out a procession in the city's Uttara, were detained, said police.
“Police arrested them five months ago when they brought out a procession and were distributing leaflets of the banned organisation in Uttara,” said Khandker Rezaul Hasan, officer-in-charge (OC) of Uttara Police Station.
They came out of jail on bail around one month ago and resumed their activities, said the OC, adding that during conversations under police custody, the youths seemed to be dedicated and staunch believers of the outfit's philosophy.
Each youth was placed on a six-day remand from yesterday in two separate cases, one for attacking Rab personnel and another under the anti-terrorism act, filed by a Rab official.
The youths had resisted arrest, leading to a scuffle with Rab personnel and the subsequent injury to two of the youths and two Rab personnel.
Hizb ut-Tahrir Bangladesh has been banned by the government since October 22, 2010.
