He is the vice president of Dhaka city unit of the Islamist group and joint secretary general of Bangladesh Khelafat Majlis.
Mahbub Alam, joint commissioner of Dhaka Metropolitan Police, said a team of Gulshan Detective Branch (DB) arrested him in a case filed over 2013 mayhem at Shapla Chattar, Motijheel.
Qurban Ali will be produced before a court tomorrow, he added.
Several central leaders of Hefazat-e-Islam, including its Joint Secretary General Mamunul Haque, were arrested in last few days.
