A man was arrested on Sunday for his suspected involvement in a turf war between rival Awami League factions, whose firing killed one person and hit a baby in her mother's womb.
AKM Ehsan Ullah Superintendent of Police (SP) Magura district told the Daily Observer that Nazrul Islam was arrested early Sunday in Dhaka.
Police will arrest other accused in this case soon, he said.  
Another accused Sen Suman was also arrested early Sunday in Dhaka, RAB confirmed. The 35-year-old is a vice president of the ruling party's student front in Magura.
"I have heard that Suman was arrested from Dhaka's Kalyanpur; we are maintaining contacts with all concerned to confirm the arrest," Magura SP told reporters.
Supporters of Magura Juba League activist Kamrul Bhuiyan clashed with former Juba League supporters Mohammad Ali and 'Ajibor' on July 23.
Stray bullets had hit Najma Begum, 30, the pregnant wife of Kamrul's brother, and their neighbour Miraz Hossain during the clash.   Kamrul's uncle Abdul Momin was killed in the incident. Doctors in Magura performed surgery on Najma to save her child that night. The infant was transferred to the Dhaka Medical College and Hospital (DMCH) two days later.
A bullet had passed through the right side of the child's body but did not damage any vital organ, doctors at DMCH said. The DMCH formed a 10-member medical board to treat the newborn. On Saturday, doctors said the baby girl was making remarkable recovery.
DMCH's paediatric surgery chief Ashraful Haque Kajal said that her wounds were healing and the baby was being breast fed. The baby's intake has also increased remarkably.
"We have increased the child's breast milk consumption rate to 5 millilitres from 2 millilitres. She is taking that easily. Her wounds are also healing," he said. "We are doing everything we can for her full recovery," added Kajal.
