An associate of top-listed fugitive criminal Zeesan Ahmed was arrested by members of Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) from Mohammadpur area of the capital yesterday. The arrestee was identified as Majharul Islam alias Shakil, allegedly a close associate of Zeesan Ahmed.

Acting on a tip-off, a RAB team conducted a drive in Mohammadpur area and arrested Mazharul, said Director of Legal and Media Wing of RAB Sarwar bin Kashem at a press briefing at the Karwanbazar Media Centre of RAB. The RAB members also seized a foreign made pistol and bullets from Mazharul's possession, added the official. However, family members of Shakil said that he was picked up by some unidentified person on

February 20 from Dhaka Medical College Hospital (DMCH) along with a relative named Shaon. RAB said Shakil came to the country in January this year. The purpose of his arrival was to reestablish criminal activities with the help and guidance of Zeesan and to lead the underworld of Dhaka.

Shakil got admitted to a hospital in the capital in a bid to spread panic among the people through some criminal activity in the hospital, claimed RAB. He was seen many times visiting the CCU unit of the Hospital where former Juba League leader Samrat is undergoing treatment, the RAB official said. Shakil was arrested from Mohammadpur bus stand area around 5am yesterday as RAB conducted its drive. He was searched at a checkpost as he was travelling on a CNG auto rickshaw. A foreign-made pistol and two rounds of bullets were found while searching. Later, it was identified that he is a close ally of top-terror Zeesan, said RAB. However, Fahim Mahamud, a relative of Shakil said that Shakil had been living in Dubai for five years. He came back to the country a fortnight ago. He has cardiac and blood pressure problems. On February 19, he suddenly suffered from nausea and was taken to a private hospital in Dhanmondhi. Later, On February 20, he was shifted to DMCH. Shaon, a relative of Shakil was with him.

“On the night of February 20, some unidentified person picked them up. Later, we lodged a general dairy (GD) at Shabagh Police Station. The GD number is 1480,” Fahim Mahamud added. The RAB official said Shakil fled to China after his name came up as an accused in connection with the murder of Rajib, an assistance secretary of Dhaka South Juba League, on June 2016. He lived there and worked at a cargo service till 2017. He left China and went to Dubai and lived there from 2017 to 2020. He met Zeesan during that time and planned to reorganise terror activities in Bangaldesh.

Responding to a question as to whether Zeesan was arrested, Sarwar bin Kashem said, “We have learned through Interpol that Zeesan has been arrested. There are processes underway to bring him back to the country.
