Arrest of former state minister demanded

District Awami League President Dr Shamsul Hoque Bhuiyan has urged the local administration to arrest ex-state minister for education ANM Ehsanul Hoque Milon for launching an attack on Kochua unit of Bangladesh Chhatra League (BCL) President Kamal Hossain and others on Thursday.

While talking to this correspondent he said Kamal received bullet injuries in the sudden attack launched by Milon and his cadres at Kochua sadar.

The district unit of BCL took out a protest procession in the town the same night condemning Milon's attack.

When contacted, Milon denied the allegation.

Meanwhile, seriously injured BNP leader and Chairman of Akania Union Parishad Mizanur Rahman's brother Khalilur Rahman filed a case with Kochua Police Station on Thursday night accusing 12 BCL leaders for injuring his brother.

Following the case, police arrested BCL leaders and activists Shahabuddin, Mostafa, Helal and Sharif from Kochua health complex.
