Police in Bangladesh said on Friday that it has arrested Gaji Yaqub Osmani, Hefazat-e-Islam's central assistant publicity secretary, for his involvement in the violent carnage carried out by the militant outfit in Brahmanbaria district and across the country in March.

Osmani was arrested on Thursday by a special team of Brahmanbaria district police, officials told IANS.

The 44-year-old is also the organising secretary of the Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam Bangladesh's Brahmanbaria district committee.

In another development, a rape case was filed against Jakaria Noman Fayezi, publicity secretary of the Hefazat's newly-dissolved central committee, in Chittagong's Hathazari upazila on Friday.

Confirming the development, Abdullah Al Masum, additional superintendent of Chittagong Police, said the victim filed the case with Hathazari Model Police Station.

In the case statement, the victim said that she became acquainted with Fayezi through social media in September 2019.

In November of the same year, Fayezi rented a house and forced the victim to come Hathazari to stay.

Fayezi raped the victim many times over the next one year, the statement added.

He was arrested from Chakaria upazila of Cox's Bazar on Thursday.
