Members of Rapid Action Battalion have arrested Bangladesh Nationalist Party chairperson Khaleda Zia’s advisor Md Habibur Rahman Habib.
RAB arrested the BNP leader in Dhaka’s Mirpur DOHS area on early Tuesday in connection with a case filed for contempt of court, RAB-2 senior assistant director (media) ASP Shihab Karim informed the media.
Further information would be shared later, added the RAB official.
