Rapid Action Battalion (Rab) today pressed charges against Kalabagan Krira Chakra President Shafiqul Alam Feroz in a case filed in connection with possessing an illegal firearm.
Mohammad Jasim Uddin, sub-inspector of Rab-2, submitted the charge sheet against Shafiqul Alam Feroz to the chief of Metropolitan Magistrate in Dhaka this afternoon.
Feroz, who was arrested from the club on the night of September 20 on charges of possessing an illegal firearm and drugs, is now in jail on completion of two phases of remand period -- one for 10-day and another for five-day.
On September 21, the two cases were filed against Shafiqul with Dhanmondi Police Station a day after Rab members detained Feroz and his four associates from the club. The members of the elite force also had seized a firearm, bullets and Yaba tablets from their procession.
Shafiqul was a central executive committee member of the immediate past committee of Krishak League, a body of the ruling Awami League. He is also the senior vice president of Bangladesh Association of International Recruiting Agencies.
