Faizullah interrogated the law enforcement officials and questioned their identities

Dhaka Metropolitan Police (DMP) has arrested a lawyer over the allegation of a scuffle with police during Khaleda Zia's bail hearing.

The arrestee Md Faizullah was arrested in front of Supreme Court's gate at 11am on Thursday.

Dhaka Metropolitan Police's Ramna Division Deputy Commissioner Sajjadur Rahman confirmed the matter.

He said: "We search everyone before entering the court. When asked, Faizullah failed to reveal his purpose to go into the court."

"On the contrary, Faizullah interrogated the law enforcement officials and questioned their identities."

At one point of the fight, police picked up Faizullah into a prison van following his arrest.

DC Sajjadur added: "We have intelligence information that people might try to enter the court using fake identity cards. Faizullah initially did not disclose his profession instead started a fight with police."

Maintaining the peaceful proceeding of the court during Khaleda's bail hearing was our outmost priority, he said.
