Law enforcement agencies have detained five individuals including the key accused and a leader of Awami Jubo League in a case filed over the recent attack on Wahida Khanam, the upazila nirbahi officer (UNO) of Ghoraghat in Dinajpur.

The detainees are, Jahangir Alam, 40, convener of Ghoraghat Upazila unit Jubo League, Asadul Haque, 38, member of the same upazila unit Jubo League, Masud Rana, 40, president of Singra union unit Jubo League, Nahid Hossain Polash, the night guard at UNO’s official residence, and Md Nabirul, a painter from Chokbamunia village.

Confirming the matter, Hakimpur police station Officer-in-Charge (OC) Ferdaus Wahid said Asadul was detained from Hakimpur upazila and Jahangir detained from Ghoraghat early Friday during a drive conducted by a joint team of Dinajpur police and Rapid Action Battalion (RAB).

Asadul, the key accused and his accomplice Jahangir have multiple prior allegations including assault, extortion and drug abuse filed against them with the district unit Jubo League, said Nirup Saha, joint convener of Ghoraghat Upazila unit Jubo League.

Speaking on the matter, Dinajpur 6 MP Shibli Sadique said he had personally written a letter to the district unit Jubo League for the duo’s expulsion for abusing their political influence.

Both Asadul and Jahangir have been taken to the RAB office in Rangpur, OC Ferdous said.

Earlier on Thursday night, law enforcement agencies detained Masud and Polash for questioning regarding the attack.
