Police arrested Jatiyatabadi Jubo Dal general secretary Abdul Monayem (Munna) and its Dhaka North City unit former president SM Jahangir Hossain on Wednesday from the city’s Malibagh area.
Shahjahanpur police arrested both Munna and Jahangir while they were returning home after a party programme in the Institute of Engineers, Juba Dal president Sultan Salahuddin Tuku told UNB.
Contacted, Monir Hossain Molla, officer-in-charge of Shahjahanpur police station, said they arrested the duo from Malibagh in a case filed against them earlier.
Meanwhile, leaders and activists of Jubo Dal brought out a procession in front of BNP’s Naya Paltan Central office protesting against the arrest of their two leaders.
