12 March 2015, Nirapad News: The BNP has claimed that law enforcers picked up party’s Joint Secretary General Salahuddin Ahmed, facing a number of violence-related cases, from Uttara in Dhaka on Tuesday night.
When contacted yesterday, police and RAB officials refuted the allegation.
As party spokesperson, Salahuddin had been issuing press releases to announce hartal programs from unknown places since the arrest of Joint Secretary General Ruhul Kabir Rizvi on January 31.
A press release signed by BNP Standing Committee member Nazrul Islam Khan last night claimed that around 20-30 law enforcers including members from police, DB and RAB had arrested Salahuddin from the house around 10 pm on Tuesday. “He has been out of reach since then. Until now, he has not been produced before the court,” the statement said.
Nazrul alleged that two other persons including a housemaid had also been picked up by the law enforcers at that time. “Few days ago, the caretaker of Salahuddin’s house and two of his drivers were arrested without warrant and produced before the court three days later,” the statement read.
Demanding immediate release of Salahuddin, Nazrul asked the government to stop abduction of the opposition leaders. Masudur Rahman, the DMP deputy commissioner (media), said they did not arrest Salahuddin.
Mufti Mahmud Khan, director of RAB’s legal and media wing, said they had no idea about Salahuddin’s detention.
