A case has been lodged against the accused following the relevant law, confirmed superintendent Hasanujjaman.
On Saturday, Hefazat-e-Islam’s Joint Secretary General Mamunul Haque was detained with a woman in a resort room in Sonargaon whom he claimed to be his second wife.
Mahanagar Hefazat’s secretary Ferdausur Rahman said Mamunul went to the resort with his second wife where the local Chatra League and Jubo League leaders confined and harassed him, before calling in the police.
Later, on Saturday night, supporters of Mamunul Haque went on the rampage in Narayanganj and vandalised the resort in Sonargaon from where he was detained.
At one point, they broke down the main gate of the resort and started a massive rampage entering the property.
As the situation was getting out of hand, police released Mamunul Haque to the demonstrating madrasa folks.
The saga of destruction continued yet after as the protestors blocked the Dhaka-Chittagong highway vandalized and set fire to local AL office and Jubo League Leader’s vehicle.
