Police have arrested 34 people, including 26 students of Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology (Buet), while they were visiting Tanguar Haor in Tahirpur upazila of Sunamganj district on Sunday.

They were arrested on charges of conspiring against the government.

Following 24 hours of interrogation, Tahirpur police station Sub-Inspector Rashedul Kabir filed a case against them under the Anti-Terrorism Act on Monday evening, confirmed Sunamganj Additional Superintendent of Police (ASP) Abu Sayed.

Sources report that the group of 34 ventured to Tanguar Haor for sightseeing on Sunday, starting their journey at around 7am and roaming through various parts of haor. 

In the afternoon, their boat went to the Patlai River.

According to the police, during their stay on the Patlai River, the group of students held a secret meeting. 

The alleged discussions included conspiracies against the government and plots to cause harm to the general public.

Acting on a tip-off, Tahirpur police positioned themselves in front of the new market in Tahirpur. 

As their boat arrived at that location, police used two speedboats to intercept it, arresting the students and taking them to the station.
