Police have arrested Narayanganj BNP leader Taimur Alam Khandaker in a case filed three years ago.
He was detained around 1pm Tuesday from the city’s Chandmari.
An adviser to BNP chief Khaleda Zia, Taimur is a former president of the party’s district chapter.
He has been named in several cases started by the police over violence in early 2015, when the BNP-led coalition enforced a countrywide blockade.
A warrant was out against Taimur in a police case over explosion and violence on January 5 that year and he was arrested on Tuesday in that case.
