Detectives pick up Naomi in Comilla
A team of detectives from Dhaka yesterday arrested Mizanur Rahman Naomi in Barura upazila of Comilla in connection with his alleged phone conversion with BNP leader Amir Khasru Mahmud Chowdhury, said an officer of Dhaka Metropolitan Police.
His family members told our Comilla correspondent that plainclothes men picked him up around 5:00am from his aunt's house at Deora village.
Naomi is the son of Siddikur Rahman Suruj, a BNP leader and councillor of ward-20 of Comilla City Corporation.
Amir Khasru, a BNP standing committee member and former minister, was sued on Saturday under the Information and Communication Technology (ICT) Act and the Special Powers Act after a record of what sounded like a phone conversation went viral on social media.
A Chhatra League leader in Chittagong filed the case with Kotwali Police Station accusing Amir Khasru of attempting to create anarchy, said police.
The Daily Star could not independently verify the phone conversation.
