UNB, Dhaka :

Home Minister Asaduzzaman Khan Kamal on Wednesday has said that members of Criminal Investigation Department (CID) arrested vernacular daily Prothom Alo’s reporter Shamsuzzaman Shams in a case.  

The minister came up with the remarks while responding to questions from journalists after an event at the ministry.

“Police can take measures if anyone being aggrieved seeks justice and lodges case at police station,” he said.

“However I am not fully clear about the matter but something happened centering the case,” the minister said.  

Terming the Prothom Alo’s report as baseless, he said, “You journalists through Ekattor TV reported that the baseless news was prepared with ill motive.” 

“I will inform you of the details after knowing all,” the minister added. 

Earlier on Wednesday, Shamsuzzaman was picked up by CID members from his Savar residence.

Witnesses and family members said 16 Criminal Investigation Department (CID) members in plainclothes picked him up from his residence in Ambagan area adjacent to Jahangirnagar University around 4:30 am.
