Activist Mizanur released from DB office after 6 hours
Jurain resident and activist Mizanur Rahaman was released from DB Headquarters in Dhaka's Minto Road, six hours after he was picked up.
"My father was released from the DB office around 4:45pm," his daughter confirmed.
Earlier, AKM Hafiz Akhter, additional commissioner of (detectives) of Dhaka Metropolitan Police, said they did not arrest him but he was taken to the DB office to talk over some issues.
His family in the morning alleged that a group of people – some in police uniform – picked him up from near Bikrampur Plaza in Jurain around 11:00am.
But detectives initially did not say anything about this.
Mofizul Alam, officer-in-charge of Shyampur Police Station, said they did not pick up Miazanur but they came to know that detectives held him for interrogation.
Asked whether Mizanur was accused in any cases, the OC then said "he is a suspected instigator in the mob beating of a traffic sergeant in Jurain on Tuesday… Senior officials are going over the information."
