Dhaka’s Government Railway Police (GRP) has arrested the runaway accused in the murder case of a youth from Sylhet.

The accused, Russel Islam, was arrested in Sylhet city's Shibganj Bazar area early on Tuesday, after the Railway police were tipped off.

He was produced to a Moulvibazar court on Tuesday afternoon, and later sent to prison. Railway police disclosed the information about the arrest later in the day.

Russel is accused of murdering a youth named Saiful Islam, 17, who hailed from Lakhai upazila of Habiganj district.

Investigating Officer of the case from Srimangal Railway police station, Md Ismail Hossain Siraji, said Russel was brought from the Tongi Adolescent Development Centre to be produced before Sylhet's Additional Metropolitan Sessions Judge Court on July 16, 2018. 

He said: "On our way back by train, Russel jumped off the train when we reached the hilly areas of Lawachara and absconded. A murder case against him is already at trial in the Additional Metropolitan Sessions Judge court.

"Apart from the murder case, he is now accused in multiple cases as he absconded from police custody."
