A sedition case has been filed against BNP leader Sadeque Hossain Khoka and Nagorik Oikya Convener Mahmudur Rahman Manna.
The case was filed this evening with Gulshan Police Station, Nurul Alam, an assistant commissioner (Gulshan zone) of Dhaka Metropolitan Police, told The Daily Star.
The other details were not available immediately.
Manna was arrested on February 24, a day after the leak of his controversial telephone conversation with Khoka, now in the USA on treatment purpose.
The next day a Dhaka court placed the Nagorik Oikya convener on a ten-day remand in a case filed with Gulshan Police Station for “trying to instigate revolt by the armed forces”.
In the conversation, Manna, also a former organising secretary of the Awami League, was heard talking to Khoka about strengthening the anti-government movement, among other issues.
