JCD leader held over human trafficking in Habiganj


Rapid Action Battalion (Rab) personnel arrested a local leader of
Jatiyatabadi Chhatra Dal, student wing of the main opposition BNP,
from Imambari Bazar in Nabiganj upazila on Tuesday for allegedly
having connection with a human trafficking gang.
The arrestee was identified as Nurul Amin, 28, president of
Kaliarbhanga union unit JCD of the upazila.
Sources at Rab-9 Sreemangal camp said a team of the elite force
arrested Nurul from Imambari Bazar at noon on charge of his suspected
involvement with a human trafficking gang for long.
There was also an allegation against him of realising ransom from the
family members of expatriates by kidnapping them abroad and there were
cases filed against him with the thana, the sources added.
However, officer-in-charge of Nabiganj Police Station Jahangir Alam
denied the matter of cases against Nurul, also president of local
CNG-run Auto-rickshaw Workers’ Association.
In protest against the arrest, drivers of local CNG-run auto-rickshaws
blocked the Habiganj-Nabiganj Road for two hours, which was later
lifted following police intervention. -UNB, Habiganj
