Bogura Jubo League leader held in extortion case
Police on Sunday night arrested a local leader of Jubo League from Bogura’s Dhunat upazila in a case filed for taking extortion money.
The arrested is Aminul Islam, 35, president of Mathurarpur UP unit Jubo League.
According to the case in 2016, Aminul demanded extortion money from No-1 Ward unit Awami League leader Ismail Hossain who leased a water body.
Aminul looted fish from the water body as Ismail refused him to give the extortion money.
Later, Ismail lodged a case with the police station in this connection.
However, Aminul claimed that he was not involved with extortion and the case is false one.
Dhunat Police Station OC Kripa Shindu Bala said Aminul was sent to jail on Monday following the court order.
