The chief of Basher Kella, KM Ziauddin Fahad, has been arrested by a team of the Detective Branch of police.
Fahad was captured from one of his sister's residence at Cadet College Residential area in Comilla on Thursday afternoon, said Dhaka Metropolitan Police Deputy Commissioner Masudur Rahman.
Basher Kella, a facebook page, used to spread instigating comments and incite Jamaat and Shibir followers to actively participate in violent activities against police and the government.
The DB, however, seized a laptop and two mobile phones from the possession of Fahad, the son of a Union Parishad chairman at Chittagong's Banshkhali.
DB Joint Commissioner Monirul Islam said, Fahad had admitted that he is the chief of Islami Chhatra Shibir Publicity Wing.
Briefing reporters at the DMP Media Centre on Friday, Monir said Fahad had also been acting as the editorial admin of around 50 Facebook pages, including Titumirer Basher Kella, Awami Tribunal, Baksal Nipat Jak, Basher Kella USA and Vission-2021.
