Outlaw held at Islamic University
Police arrested an operative of the outlawed Gono Bahini from the campus of Islamic University Friday evening and recovered three bullets and three bombs from his possession.
The arrestee was identified as Billal Hossain, 30. He is a cousin of Gono Bahini top cadre Ali Ehsan Kalu who is now holing up in India, police said.
The arrest was made two days after police had arrested his younger brother Ali Murtoza Khasru, a student of Islamic University and also Bangladesh Chhatra League convener of Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman Hall of the university.
Police said they arrested Billal from the dormitory area as he was organising other operatives of Gono Bahini to create anarchy on the campus following the arrest of Khasru.
As per his statement, police later recovered an Indian pistol, three bullets and three bombs from a bag kept in a bush near the main gate of the university.
Police claimed that Billal went to the university campus Thursday morning, a day after Khasru was arrested and organised his men. They put up a blockade on the Kushtia-Khulna highway for about two hours and padlocked the university main gate and administration building.
Police produced Billal before the district judicial magistrate court and sought a five-day remand. The court sent him to jail.
