BNP on Wednesday night alleged that plain-clothes police detained their information affairs secretary Azizul Bari Helal on Wednesday night.
BNP senior joint secretary general Ruhul Kabir Rizvi told that the members of Detective Branch (DB) of police picked Helal up from his Moghbazar Warless Gate residence around 7:45pm.
He strongly condemned and protested the arrest of Helal, also a former president of BNP’s student wing Jatiyatabadi Chhatra Dal.
Earlier on Tuesday night, plain-clothes police detained BNP standing committee member Gayeshwar Chandra Roy and its executive committee member Onindo Islam Amit in the city.
A court here today sent Gayeshwar Chandra Roy to jail showing him arrested in a case filed for attacking police and vandalising their vehicles on Tuesday.
