Detectives arrested the main accused of a double-murder case, who had gone into hiding after securing bail from the High Court, from Dhorla village in Boalkhali upazila early Wednesday.
The arrestee was identified as Ajit Biswas, a Jubo League activist.
Badrul Kabir, inspector of Chattogram detective branch of police, said Ajit, the prime suspect of CRB double-murder case, secured bail from the High Court after his arrest but did not appear before the sub-ordinate court later.
Tipped off, a DB team conducted a drive at the village and arrested Ajit around 2:30am, said the inspector.
On June 24, 2013, a minor boy, Arman Hossain, 8, and Jubo League activist, Saju Palit, were killed in a clash between Jubo League and Bangladesh Chhatra League (BCL) in the port city’s CRB area over a railway tender bid.
Two cases were later filed over the incident and Ajit Biswas was the main accused in a case filed by Minati Palit, mother of Saju Palit.
