Arrestee Morsheda Khatun,38, wife of Abdul Majid, is a ‘regional leader’ of outlawed PBCP-Lal Pataka.

During interrogation, Morsheda divulged some important information about their organisational activities, police said.
Sub-Inspector of Santhia police station Mohammad Rashid produced her at Pabna judicial magistrate’s court yesterday seeking remand for 7 days.
“We have found the minutes of a meeting of outlawed PBCP-Lal Pataka faction. A resolution dated July 20, 2009 showed that the outfit collected Tk 76 thousand from Pabna region and spent Tk 61 thousand.
