He was arrested from his Gulshan residence in Dhaka
Detective Branch (DB) of Police has arrested BNP leader Ruhul Quddus Talukdar Dulu from his Gulshan residence in Dhaka.
He was arrested around 11am on Wednesday, Joint Commissioner of DB Mahbub Alam told the Dhaka Tribune.
"We had a warrant to arrest Dulu in a case lodged with Sher-e-Bangla Nagar police station," Mahbub said.
However, he did not disclose details regarding the case.
On Tuesday, the Election Commission filed a petition with the Appellate Division against a High Court order that cleared the way for Dulu to contest the 11th parliamentary election.
The High Court order came after Dulu filed a writ petition against the returning officer's disqualification of his candidacy on Monday.
Dulu, who filed his nomination papers for Natore 2 constituency, had his candidacy rejected for his conviction in a criminal case.
The 11th general election is slated to be held on December 30.
