JCD man held over human trafficking
Members of Rapid Action Battalion (Rab) arrested a local leader of Jatiyatabadi Chhatra Dal at Imambari Bazar in Nabiganj upazila on Tuesday on charge of having connection with a human trafficking gang.
The arrestee is Nurul Amin, 28, president of Kaliarbhanga union unit JCD in the upazila.
Rab-9 Sreemangal camp sources said a team of the elite force arrested Nurul from the area for his suspected involvement with the gang for long.
There was also an allegation against him of realising ransom from the family members of expatriates by kidnapping them abroad and there were cases filed against him with Nabiganj police station, said the sources.
However, officer in-charge of the PS Jahangir Alam denied the matter of cases against Nurul, also president of local CNG-run Auto-rickshaw Workers' Association.
Protesting the arrest, drivers of local CNG-run auto-rickshaws blocked Habiganj-Nabiganj Road for about two hours.
