Police on Thursday arrested another leader of Hefazat-e-Islam from the city’s Bangshal area on Thursday evening.

The arrestee is Mawlana Ihteshamul Haque Sathi, assistant office secretary of Hefazat’s Dhaka city unit.

Additional Deputy Commissioner of Police (Media and PR Division) of Dhaka Metropolitan Police (DMP) Iftekhairul Islam confirmed the matter.

He said: “Ihteshamul was arrested around 5:30pm on Thursday.”

Earlier in the morning members of Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) arrested Khaled Syfullah Ayubi, assistant secretary general of Hefazat-e-Islam's central unit, from Singair upazila of Manikganj district.

On Wednesday, three top Hefazat-e-Islam leaders were arrested from Dhaka's Mohammadpur and Kafrul areas.

They were Mawlana Khurshid Alam Kasemi, nayeb-e-ameer of Khilafat Majlish, and vice-president of Hefazat-e-Islam, Maulana Ataullah Amin, assistant general secretary of Hefazat's Dhaka city unit and joint secretary general of Bangladesh Khilafat Majlish, and Mufti Sharafat Hossain, joint general secretary of Khilafat Majlish.

On Tuesday, Mawlana Qurban Ali Kasemi, vice-president of Hefazat-e-Islam and joint secretary general of Khilafat Majlish, was also arrested from Dhaka's Basabo.

On April 18, Hefazat's Joint Secretary General Mamunul Haq was arrested from a Mohammadpur madrasa.

Many top Hefazat leaders have been arrested recently following vandalism and arson carried out by the organization’s supporters across the country against Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi's Bangladesh visit last month.

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