A case will be filed against BNP's joint secretary general Aslam Chowdhury on sedition charges for 'conspiring with Israel to oust  the government'.

Inspector General of Police (IGP) AKM Shahidul Hoque at a programme in city's Razarbagh  on Thursday told the media that the case will be filed today (Thursday).

“He tried to create anarchy by making the present government seem unpopular to the leaders of Israel’s Likud party. Our initial investigation has found evidence that suggest that,” the IGP said, reports

“We had sought the home ministry's permission to file a sedition case against Aslam Chowdhury. The ministry has sanctioned that,” said IGP Hoque. 

The case will be filed at the Gulshan Police Station by evening, Detective Branch Deputy Commissioner Sheikh Nazmul Alam told “Everything has been finalised.”

A BNP joint secretary general, Aslam came into the limelight because of his meeting with Likud Party leader Mendi N Safadi during an event in India this year.

Leaders of the ruling Awami League soon claimed their meeting was part of a conspiracy to oust Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina with help of Israeli spy agency Mossad.  
The BNP has been denying the allegation, saying Aslam’s trip to New Delhi was ‘personal’.

He was arrested in Dhaka on May 15 under Section 54 and questioned in police custody.
