Immigration police at Hazrat Shahjalal International Airport on Saturday arrested Sarwar Hossain, known as Chattogram's 'top criminal.'
Priton Sarkar, officer-in-charge of Bayazid Bostami Police station, confirmed that Sarwar was arrested around 10am, right after he had returned to Dhaka from Qatar.
He further added that a team from Bayazid Bostami Police Station has been sent to transport Sarwar from Dhaka to Chattogram as he is wanted in connection with several cases.
A few months ago Qatar police arrested Sarwar Hossain and Nurnabi Maxon in connection with a fight. Nurnabi has been absconding after he came back to Bangladesh a month and a half ago.
Police arrested Sarwar Hossain and Nurnabi Maxon with five firearms including AK-47 rifles on July 6, 2011 in Brahmanbaria. They were identified as associates of Sajjad Ali Khan, another top criminal imprisoned in an Indian jail.
