33 JCD men held in Kushtia
Police have detained 33 leaders and activists of Kushtia district unit of Jatiyatabadi Chhatra Dal (JCD) while they were holding "a secret meeting" at the house of a BNP central leader in the district town.

A case was lodged against them with the police station under subversive act.
