DHAKA: Police arrested one person on charge of his involvement with the shootout incident that left five people injured at Roads and Highways Department in the city.
The detainee was identified as Abul Kalam Azad, 38.
Contractor Gulam Azam Mamun filed a case against four identified and 18 to 20 unidentified people in this connection on Tuesday night.
Azad is an accused of the case. Three others accused are Kamal Uddin Khandaker, 47, Md. Fazlur Rahman, 40, and Mohammad Rafiq, 33.
Shahbag Thana Officer-in-Charge Sirajul Islam said,” We have kept our drive on to arrest the accused.”
Earlier on Tuesday, at least five people, including publicity secretary of Central Shecchasebak League Shamim Shahriar, received bullet injury as their rivals allegedly opened fire on them following a long-standing tender dispute.
Sources said the attack was a result of the rivalry between Kamal Uddin Khondakar, an office assistant of RHD and general secretary of pro-Awami League Shramik Karmachari Union, and Shamim Shahriar.
