Hillary's Visit

4 Hizb-ut protesters arrested

Police yesterday arrested four members of banned militant organisation Hizb-ut-Tahrir for bringing out a procession in the capital protesting the arrival of US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
The arrestees are Mohammad Aziz, 22, a BBA student of East West University, Jahangir Alam, another BBA student of the same institution, Abdullah Al Mobin, 26, MBA student of Dhaka University, and Mohammad Galib, 30, a BBA student of North South University.
They were arrested around noon when nearly 25 activists of the militant organisation brought out a procession before the Ministry of Foreign Affairs office to denounce Hillary Clinton's visit to the country, said Syed Nurul Islam, deputy commissioner of Dhaka Metropolitan Police (DMP).
Police charged baton to disperse the procession that also demanded establishment of Islamic rule in the country and release of arrested party leaders and activists, he said.
Detained Jahangir Alam introduced himself as son of Dhaka University Kuwait Maitree Hall provost Farida Begum, said MA Jalil, sub-inspector of Shahbagh Police Station. She was not available on the phone.
A case will be filed after discussions with police high-ups, said Sirajul Islam, officer-in-charge of Shahbagh Police Station.
As part of her three-nation tour (Bangladesh, India and China), Hillary Clinton is expected to arrive in Dhaka tomorrow and hold meetings with government high-ups, opposition leaders and civil society representatives.
