The Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) has arrested four members of the banned militant outfit Hizb ut-Tahrir, on Thursday in Gazipur.

These members were arrestedunder the suspicion of hampering the law and order situation by engaging in vandalism activities in the upcoming national election, said RAB in a press release issued on Friday.  

The arrested are: Sharif Ashraf Rajib, 28, Fahad Mia, 20, Billal Hossain, 30, and Milon Mia, 30.

RAB-1 Company Commander (Porabari camp) Lt Cdr Abdullah Al Mamun said that acting on a tip-off, the elite force conducted a drive in the Chandona Chourasta area in the Metropolis and arrested Milon and Billal, while they were distributing provocative leaflets.

The official also said the elite team arrested Fahad and Ashraf from Masterbari area where a few other active members of the organization were distributing provocative leaflets.

RAB-1 Captain Lt Col Sarwar Bin Kashem said that quite a few such leaflets, a few mobile phones, along with cash were recovered from the possession of the individuals arrested in both incidents.

On interrogating, the arrestees confessed that they were active members of Hizb ut-Tahrir, who paid monthly subscription fees and took part in influencing others into joining their organization.

RAB also learned that they conducted their meetings at the Gazipur Masterbari Jame Mosque, Sreepur Bormi Bazar Jame Mosque, Sreepur Municipality Maona Jame Mosque and sometimes in the arrested Ashraf’s house including various other places.
