The party will hold a meeting immediately to take action against Nasir in the interim period, Jatiya Party Chairman GM Quader, also deputy leader of the opposition in parliament, told newsmen on Monday.

He said Nasir U Mahmud was not active in the party for a while but later he has been included in the party’s presidium body as he has expressed his willingness to become active in the organisation.

Police have arrested five people, including prime accused businessman Nasir Uddin Mahmud, also presidium member of Jatiya Party, in a case filed for attempting to rape and murder popular film actress and model Pori Moni.
