Police have arrested Rajshahi district BNP convener Abu Sayeed Chand on charge of threatening Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina to kill her.
A patrol team of police arrested him from the city's Bheripara intersection around 11am while he was trying to flee by a private car. He was taken to Rajshahi Metropolitan Police (RMP) office.
The BNP leader at a rally on May 19 on Shibchar High School playground in Rajshahi's Puthia upazila said that there will be no 27 points or 10 points. The only demand is to send Sheikh Hasina to the grave.
This video later enraged the public's sentiment.
Then several cases--four with RMP-- have been filed against Abu Sayeed Chand, 66.
And after that, police drives were on to arrest the BNP leader.
