Police on Friday arrested a fugitive convict who had been on the run since his conviction in the 2012 Biswajit Das murder case.

Alauddin, 35, who was sentenced to life in jail in the case in 2013, was nabbed from his parents-in-law’s house in the Mokamtola of Shibganj of upazila in Bogra.

Acting on a tip-off, a team conducted a raid in the area and arrested Alauddin in the short hours of Friday, said Bogra District Additional Superintendent of Police (ASP) Ali Haider Chowdhury.

Tailoring shop employee Biswajit was chopped to death by some BCL activists near Bahadur Shah Park in Old Dhaka on December 9, 2012, during the BNP-led alliance’s countrywide road blockade programme.

On December 18, 2013, a tribunal sentenced eight BCL activists to death and 13 others, including Alauddin, to life imprisonment in the Biswajit killing case.

On August 6, 2017, the High Court upheld the death sentences of Rafiqul Islam Shakil and Rajon Talukder and commuted the capital punishment of four other convicts - Mahfuzur Rahman Nahid, Emdadul Haque Emdad, GM Rasheduzzaman Shawon and Mir Nurul Alam Liman - to life term.
