There are 27 cases against Mamun, including murder and narcotics charges 

The Counter Terrorism and Transnational Crime (CTTC) unit of Dhaka Metropolitan Police (DMP) on Monday arrested Mofizur Rahman Mamun, an alleged top criminal of Dhaka’s Mirpur and Pallabi area. 

Mamun, who has already been convicted and sentenced to life imprisonment in absentia, was arrested from Baitun Nur Jame Masjid area of Pallabi at round 6.40am today, a DMP press release said.

“Police had information about an anti-state criminal gang that is plotting to destabilize the country through targeted killing and indiscriminate violence. This gang was trying to collect weapons from the black market. The Counter Terrorism Department started a shadow investigation over the matter and conducted a raid where one person was detained," the release added.

After primary investigation and interrogation, police learned that the suspect is  Mamun, who is accused in 27 cases for charges including extortion, murder, drugs, illegal weapons, and armed robbery. A total of 15 arrest warrants have been issued against him and he was convicted in absentia in two cases. 

According to police sources, Mamun once had full control of the underworld in Mirpur. He was arrested and thrown behind bars in 2001, but managed to escape to India in 2004.

In 2008, Mamun was arrested and sentenced to 10 years in jail in India for passport forgery and illegal entry. After his release from jail, Mamun made close contacts with other top terrorists, such as Ibrahim and Shahadat, to establish a new reign of terror.
