Dhaka court ordered to arrest Jamaat Islami acting Ameer Maqbul Ahmed

A Dhaka court on Monday ordered the arrest of Jamaat-e-Islami acting ameer Maqbul Ahmed for his alleged role in torching a bus near the PMO during the April 29 shutdown. The arrest warrants came after the court accepted the bus torching charges against Maqbul, BNP acting secretary general Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir and 43 other leaders and activists of the 18-party alliance. Metropolitan Magistrate Mohammad Erfanullah issued the warrant as the Jamaat leader went into hiding since the case was filed. Tejgaon police filed the case against a number of leaders and workers of the 18-party alliance, including BNP leaders Fakhrul, Mirza Abbas and Ruhul Kabir Rizvi Ahmed; and Liberal Democratic Party President Oli Ahmed, hours after a vehicle was set ablaze near the Prime Minster’s Office on April 29 evening. Meanwhile on May 10, detectives pressed charges against 45 leaders and activists of BNP-led 18-party alliance, including the BNP acting secretary general in the arson case
