Update : 08 May 2014, 12:52 PM

Police have arrested 24 Jamaat-e-Islam and Islami Chhatra Shibir activists suspected of subversive activities in different parts of the district early Thursday.

The suspects, who were picked up from Satkania, Lohagara and Banshkhali upazilas, were allegedly involved in violence during the last general elections and were planning to create disturbances ahead of the forthcoming verdict in the war crimes case against Jamaat leader Delwar Hossain Sayedee, a police official said.

Additional Superintendent of Police, Nazmul Hasan of Chittagong (north zone), told the Dhaka Tribune that they acted on a tip off and arrested 20 members of the Islamic party and its student wing from Sadhonpur, Puichhari, Shekherkhil and other Jamaat-Shibir dominated areas of Banshkhali.

Moreover, three wanted Jamaat-Shibir men were held from Lohagara, while one was nabbed from Satkania, he said.

All the suspects were produced before a court on Thursday.

Most of those detained were accused in several cases filed with different police stations in connection with the violence during the January 5 elections, Nazmul said.
