Arrest without warrant goes against Supreme Court directives: BNP

Abrar Hussain

BNP has alleged that law enforcers violated the Supreme Court’s directives by arresting one of its leaders without any warrant. Speaking at a discussion yesterday, party secretary general Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir also criticized the government’s plan to hold the next national election while  BNP chairperson Khaleda Zia is in jail. “I would like to express my anger and sorrow as I couldn’t save a Chhatra Dal leader who tried to escape arrest holding me tight. The law enforcers swooped on our ongoing program in front of the Press Club and snatched him by tearing his clothes,” he said. “It’s a rare and most disgusting incident in Bangladesh’s political history. On Thursday, police arrested JCD leader Mizanur Rahman Raj from BNP’s sit-in program in front of the Jatiya Press Club and foiled the event just 13 minutes before its scheduled conclusion. Calling the current government a ‘dangerous demon’, Fakhrul alleged that it has destroyed all democratic institutions to hang onto power. “Their main motive is to retain power without a competitive election.” He also alleged that the government is controlling the judiciary by establishing a one-party rule.
