Police arrest Rashed Sarwar Rumon in connection with a case under the Motor Vehicle Act in Satkhira on January 13, 2019 Dhaka Tribune

Rumon’s mother Rifat Amin is the president of the Satkhira Mahila Awami League and became a member of parliament for the first time in 2014

Police on Sunday arrested Rashed Sarwar Rumon, son of 10th parliament reserve seat MP Rifat Amin, in connection to a case filed under the Motor Vehicle Act.

According to Sadar police station Officer-in-Charge Mostafizur Rahman, Rumon was arrested from Binerpota area of Satkhira town on Sunday morning and sent to jail by a court.

Rumon was found joyriding in a vehicle which had his mother’s “parliament member” sticker on it.

Police had previously arrested him in September 2016 over two extortion cases filed by Satkhira Jubo League leader Zulfiqar Ali Ujjal and trader Sirajul Islam Bullet. He was brought in for questioning, but was later released.

Rumon’s mother, who became MP for the first time in 2014, is also president of the Satkhira Mahila Awami League. His father is a well-known businessman in the town.

Locals say Rumon was spoiled from an early age. He was infamous for his drug abuse and riding recklessly on his motorcycle through Satkhira town.

He was sent to Saudi Arabia for drug rehabilitation, but sources said he reverted to his old ways once he returned to Bangladesh.

In 2016, Rumon was accused of injuring a cattle trader with an iron rod.

He made headlines again on September 11 the same year for beating four people, including an Awami League leader. He went into hiding afterwards.

Rumon spent several days in jail after he was found at a resort in Shyamnagar with his mother’s car, along with three women and some firearms.

Despite such incidents, his mother always deflected blame away from her son, claiming the allegations to be “propagandas.”
