JCD men vandalise 17 vehicles in capital

Jatiyatabadi Chhatra Dal (JCD), student wing of BNP, vandalised at least 17 vehicles in different parts of the capital on Monday while staging protests against an arrest warrant for BNP leader Tarique Rahman.

The JCD activists of JagannathUniversity brought out a procession in Laxmi Bazar area in the old part of Dhaka city around 10:00am as part of their countrywide demonstrations.

At one stage of the demonstration, they vandalised the vehicles–five private cars, four human-haulers and a CNG-run three-wheelers–at Ekrampur intersection of the area.

On query, Rafiqul Islam, officer-in-charge of Sutrapur Police Station, said he heard about the vandalism, reported Bangla daily Prothom Alo.

The situation is now under control, he added.

The JCD men also vandalised four vehicles in Fakirerpool while three in Hatirpool areas around 11:00am.

A Dhaka on Sunday cleared the way for the Anti-Corruption Commission to seek the help of Interpol in arresting Tarique in connection with a money laundering case.

Tarique, the elder son of BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia and late president Ziaur Rahman, has been in exile in London since September 2008, when he obtained bail in other cases filed against him.

He was arrested in 2007 during an anti-graft crackdown conducted by the military-backed caretaker government of the time.

On August 8, 2011, the court framing money laundering charges against Tarique and issued an arrest warrant against him in the case.

Police were, however, unable to arrest him as he was, and continues to be, abroad. Tarique has 16 other cases hanging over him.
