Confusion over Zeesan arrest

Confusion over Zeesan arrest

There has been a mix-up over the arrest of Zeesan, one of the listed top terrorists, in Dubai. Law enforcers are claiming that Zeesan has been arrested, while several sources have confirmed that the arrested person was not Zeesan.

According to information obtained by The Independent, Zeesan is currently living in London.

After the government began the anti-casino drive, he moved from Dubai to London via several countries. When contacted, Md Sohel Rana, assistant inspector general (AIG), told The Independent that they did not have any new information about Zeesan and his whereabouts.

“We don’t have new information about Zeesan since we have declared his arrest,” he said.

Zeesan, alias Ali Akbar Chowdhury, got bail in Dubai on October 10 with the condition that he would not be able to leave the United Arab Emirates, according to several sources. Md Sohel Rana, however, said he did not have any information regarding Zeesan’s bail.

The arrested person in Dubai had the passport under the name Ali Akbor Chowdhury. According to sources, there has been a mix-up over the arrest since there is not any picture of Zeesan. Zeesan, who is a most wanted criminal, had been arrested in Dubai and Bangladesh police had already initiated the process to bring him back to the country. On October 4, a press release was sent from the police headquarters confirming his arrest. The press release said Zeesan was arrested in Dubai with the help of the Bangladesh National Central Bureau (NCB) and the NCB Dubai. On October 3, the NCB Dubai confirmed the criminal’s arrest to the Bangladesh Police Headquarters. After completion of the trial process, he would be brought back home, added the release. On October 5, home minister Asaduzzaman Khna told the media that Zeesan would be brought back to Bangladesh soon. “The process to bring Zeesan back is underway.

We hope we’ll bring him back very soon,” he told the media after inaugurating a puja mandap in Dhaka. Zeesan has long been a fugitive due to his involvement in various criminal activities, including murder of policemen and extortion. He came to the limelight in the country’s underworld, especially in Badda, Gulshan, and Khilgaon areas after 1999.
