Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) has arrested Mazharul Islam Shakil, associate of Bangladeshi top terror and Interpol's most wanted criminal Zeesan alias Ali Akbar Chowdhury.
Shakil was arrested from Mohammadpur area in the capital along with pistols and bullets.
RAB Media Wing's Director Sarwar Bin Kashem will brief media about the arrest later today at RAB Media Centre.
Zeesan came to prominence in the country's underworld scene especially in Badda, Gulshan, and Khilgaon areas after 1999.
On May 14, 2003, two police officials were killed during an operation to arrest Zeesan in Malibagh after his cohorts fired on the law enforcers.
Zeesan left Bangladesh in 2007, first to India and then to Dubai.
