Indigenous Drugs Laboratories (Idrul) manager Md Samsuzzaman Milon was arrested in Dhaka on early Sunday in connection with a case pertaining to the murder of journalist Subarna Nodi.
Samsuzzaman Milon, based in village Gopalpur of Pabna town, went into hiding following the murder to avoid arrest as he was one of the suspects.
He was picked up from one of his relatives’ house at Armanitola at about 12:30am, RAB said in a press release on Sunday morning.
Subarna Akter Nodi, in her thirties, was stabbed near her home in Pabna town at about 10:00pm on August 31.
She succumbed to her injuries at Pabna Medical College Hospital hours later.
She was the Pabna correspondent of Ananda TV and publisher of online newspaper Jagrato Bangla.
Victim’s mother Marjina Begum filed a case accusing Subarna’s former husband Rajib Hossain and his father Abul Hossain, who is the owner and chairman of Indigenous Drugs Laboratories (Idrul), and Idrul manager Samsuzzaman Milon and some other persons with the Pabna Police Station on September 1.
Police managed to arrest Abul Hossain after the incident but the key accused Rajib and Milon went on hiding after the incident, RAB said.
‘RAB started investigation and traced Milon in Dhaka. Then a team of RAB 12, Pabna camp, arrested him from the capital’s Armanitola.
He was taken to Pabna RAB camp and handed over to police,’ Md Ruhul Amin, commander of RAB 12, Pabna camp, said.
