The government yesterday informed the High Court that the law enforcers had arrested Mahfuzur Rahman Nahid, an alleged killer of Bishwajit Das, whose identity was published in the media.
The HC was also told that the law enforcers had detained two more persons in this connection, and they were trying to arrest all the culprits involved in the killing.
Deputy Attorney General Amit Talukder conveyed the information when the HC was hearing a rule, which it issued on Tuesday, directing the law enforcement agencies to arrest the five killers whose identities had been published in The Daily Star within 24 hours and to report to it if they fail to nab the criminals within the given time.
Bishwajit Das, a 24-year-old businessman, was beaten and hacked to death by a group of Chhatra League activists in Old Dhaka on November 9, when the opposition's countrywide blockade was underway.
Replying to the rule, Amit Talukder said the government had taken steps so that the culprits could not escape arrest, and the law enforcers would be able to arrest all the alleged killers within a very short time.
The HC bench of Justice AHM Shamsuddin Choudhury Manik and Justice Farid Ahmed issued the rule after Nazim Ahmed, editor of the weekly Shoptoporno, filed a petition after a report of The Daily Star named some Chhatra League activists--Rafiqul Islam, Noore Alam, Mahfuzur Rahman Nahid, and Obaidhul Quader Emdadul Haque--as the killers of Bishwajit.
Yesterday, Nazim Ahmed filed another petition with the bench, seeking its order on the government to arrest the three other alleged killers of Biswhajit, whose identities were published in The Daily Star. They are Rasheduzzaman Shaon, Rintu and Mohammad Uzzal.
