Awami League's Faridpur town unit president Nazmul Islam Khandaker has been arrested on Friday in connection with money laundering.


Md Alimuzzaman, superintendent of police in Faridpur, said a team of police detained him from his office in Charkamalapur area of the district town in the afternoon.


He said Nazmul Hasan has been held in a money laundering case as per the instruction of Criminal Investigation Department (CID) of police.


After his arrest, Nazmul was sent to Faridpur Jail, the SP said.


Nazmul was held after former Faridpur town unit Awami League general secretary Sajjad Hossain alias Barkat and his brother Imtiaz Hasan alias Rubel, former president of Faridpur Press Club, gave confessional statement before a Dhaka court on July 30 in a case filed over siphoning off Tk 2,000 crore abroad.


On June 26, the CID filed the case against the duo under the money laundering act with Kafrul Police Station in the capital.
