Daily Sangram Chief Reporter Ruhul Amin Gazi, also the president of a faction of Bangladesh Federal Union of Journalist (BFUJ), was arrested on Wednesday.

Dhaka Metropolitan Police Deputy Commissioner (media) Walid Hossain said there was a court-issued arrest warrant against Ruhul in a sedition case.

Ruhul was arrested by Hatirjheel police in the evening based on that warrant, he added.

Officials of Daily Sangram said that Ruhul was arrested from the newspaper's office after Maghrib prayers.

Tejgaon police Deputy Commissioner Harun Ur Rashid also said that Ruhul had failed to appear in a number of court hearings, in the sedition case filed against Daily Sangram Editor Abul Asad by Muktijuddho Mancha leaders.

That is why the arrest warrant was issued against Ruhul, Harun said.

Last year, Asad was also accused in a case filed under Digital Security Act (DSA) on charges of circulating provocative reports. He, however, secured bail for a year from the High Court on September 23 this year. 

On December 13 last year, police had detained Asad as his newspaper described Abdul Quader Mollah, an executed 1971 war criminal, as a “martyr” in a report published on December 12.

He was later shown arrested in the DSA case filed at Hatirjheel police station by Ward 36 Muktijoddha Sangsad Commander Afzal Hossain.

Muktijuddho Mancha leaders and activists had also vandalized the office of Jamaat-e-Islami mouthpiece Sangram following that report's publication.
