Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) has arrested Maulana Ataullah Ameen, assistant general secretary of Hefazat’s Dhaka city unit and joint secretary general of Bangladesh Khelafat Majlis, from Dhaka’s Mohammadpur area.

The elite force members arrested Amin from the Jamia Rahmania Arabia Madrasa at around 12:30am on Wednesday.

He was arrested in connection with several cases filed over the 2013 Hefazat mayhem.

Lt Col Khairul Islam, director of RAB's Intelligence Wing, confirmed the matter to Dhaka Tribune. He said: “The arrestee will be soon handed over to the police.”

Earlier on April 18, Hefazat's Joint Secretary General Mamunul Haq was arrested from the same madrasa.

Some other senior Hefazat leaders were arrested in recent times after Hefazat’s activists’ acts of violence at different parts of the country protesting against the visit of Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi marking the celebration of the golden jubilee of the country’s independence last month.

Other arrested leaders include Hefazat’s Dhaka city unit President Junaid Al-Habib, Assistant General Secretary Jalaluddin Ahmed, its Dhaka City unit Vice President Maulana Jubair Ahmed, Assistant Publicity Secretary Sharifullah, and Organizing Secretary Azizul Haque Islamabadi.
