He said: “Liton will soon be produced before the court.”

The Detective Branch (DB) of police arrested the Awami League lawmaker from his relative’s house in Uttara around 10pm Wednesday.

Liton’s arrest came hours after the Supreme Court issued a stay order on a High Court ruling that rejected an anticipatory bail petition by Liton and ordered him to surrender before the trial court by October 18.

On Wednesday, Home Minister Asaduzzaman Khan Kamal told reporters that the parliamentarian would be tried in accordance with the court order. Law enforcers would take action as soon as they get their hands on the court documents, he added.

On October 2, eight-year-old Sourav, son of Sazu Miah of Gopalcharan village, was injured with stray bullets allegedly fired by Liton at the village. The father filed a case against Liton the following day and the legislator went into hiding after that.
