Earlier, 219 migrants workers who returned from Kuwait, Qatar, and Bahrain were sent to jail
Thirty-two migrant workers have been arrested under Section 54 of the Code of Criminal Procedure (CrCP).
They were arrested on Monday. Of the arrestees, two are women.
On September 11, the workers returned to Dhaka from Syria and were kept in a quarantine centre in Diabari area.
Police produced them before the court of Magistrate Debdash Chandra Adhikari and later the court sent them to jail.
“We received two letters which mentioned that they (the workers) were in prison for seven months in Syria. One came from their authority and another from our ministry,” one police officer wishing to be anonymous said.
But he did not mention which ministry it is.
When asked what types of crime the workers committed, he said: “No such things were mentioned in the letters. They only stated about their imprisonment.”
However, police will investigate the matter to see if they (the migrant workers) had committed any “anti-state” activities or are a “threat to the country.”
Earlier, on July 5, 219 migrant workers who returned from Kuwait, Qatar and Bahrain were sent to jail after police apprehended them under Section 54.
Police brought allegations against them of "tarnishing the image of Bangladesh" as the cause for arrest.
Later on September 1, police arrested 83 migrant workers after they completed their 14-day quarantine at Diabari Camp in Dhaka following their return from Vietnam and Qatar.
