A suspected member of banned militant group Hizb-ut-Tahrir was arrested from the city’s Kotwali area on Sunday night, UNB reports.
He has been named as Sabqat Ahmed, 20, son of Kausar Ahmed Chowdhury of Patia Upazila. Counter Terrorism and Transnational Crime (CTTC) unit officials raided Kazi Nazrul Islam Road acting on a tip-off and arrested the youth.
