A team of Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) has arrested Maulana Rafiqul Islam, popularly known as ‘Shishu Bokta’, from Netrokona on Wednesday afternoon on charges of making provocative and arrogant anti-state remarks and creating chaos.

RAB Law and Media Branch Director Commander Khandaker Al Moin confirmed his arrest to The Daily Samakal.

On March 25 of this year, Motijheel police arrested Rafiqul from an anti-Modi protest rally at Shapla Chattar in the capital, but released him a few hours later.

As per the pre-arranged program, Chhatra and Jubo Adhikar Parishad (Students and Youth Rights Council) staged an anti-Modi protest in Muktangon on that day. 

Rafiqul joined the event.
