Tasvir Ul Islam built five storeys on top of the 18-storey building illegally, sources say
Police have detained BNP leader Tasvir Ul Islam, one of the owners of the illegally occupied floors in FR Tower in Dhaka's Banani.
He was detained from his home in Baridhara around 10:45pm Saturday night.
Police Detective Branch (north) ADC Shajahan Saju confirmed to Bangla Tribune that Tasvir had been held.
The central BNP committee member and Kurigram BNP president, also the managing director of Quasem Drycells Company Ltd, illegally built five storeys on top of the 18-storey building during BNP-Jamaat's rule from 2001-2006.
Tasvir bought the 20th and 21st floors from late Jatiya Party lawmaker Maidul Islam, who had bought them from the developer company. Later, Tasvir changed the building's design and added two extra floors on top of the roof.
