Police have arrested a Jatiyatabadi Chhatra Dal leader who allegedly led vandalism and arson attacks on garment factories and other establishments in Gazipur.

The arrestee was identified as Ripon Hossain, joint convener of Kaliakoir upazila unit of Chhatra Dal.

A press briefing on the development was held at Gazipur Metropolitan Police Commissioner’s office earlier today (November 07, 2023).Gazipur Metropolitan Police Commissioner Md Mahbub Alam said that after going over footage and photos, it was found that several garment factories in Shafipur and Konabari of the district were set on fire and vandalised under Ripon Hossain’s leadership.

“Under his leadership, attempts were made to create an unstable environment by committing these crimes to implement the party’s agenda in the name of demanding wage hikes for garment workers,” the Gazipur police commissioner said.

A police team arrested Ripon from Dhaka’s Hazaribagh area yesterday.

The Chhatra Dal leader will be sent to court and police will appeal for 10 days’ remand for more details, the police official added.
