Key fugitive convict in Bangabandhu killing arrested

Abdul Mazed, a key fugitive convict in the killing of Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, has been arrested, said Home Minister Asaduzzaman Khan.

The minister said on Tuesday, "The arrest has been made and he'll soon be produced in court."

Reports in the media at various times indicated that Mazed was absconding in neighbouring India, bdnews24.com reported.

On whether he had been extradited from India, Khan said, "We found him in Bangladesh. Maybe fears over the coronavirus brought him back here."

The home minister, however, did not shed light on any further details regarding the arrest.

Asked about the matter, DMP Deputy Commissioner Masudur Rahman said a special team of the counter-terrorism unit apprehended Mazed from the capital's Mirpur-11 around 3am on Tuesday.
