Jamaat man held during shutdown to protest death penalty for Nizami

Jamaat-Nizami

Dhaka : An alleged activist of Jamaat-e-Islami was detained while trying to bring out a procession in Dhaka during the party enforced 24-hour countrywide shutdown today.

The police picked him up from Green Road this morning, said Mohammad Iqbal, the officer-in-charge of Kalabagan Police Station, reports The Daily Star.

The shutdown is underway peacefully with very little hindrance to public life.

The shutdown began from 6 a.m. today to protest against the Supreme Court verdict that upheld the death penalty awarded to Jamaat chief Motiur Rahman Nizami on May 5. (ANI)
