Fugitive convict arrested

The Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) has arrested a drug peddler who had been on the run for seven years after being sentenced to life in a drug case.

The RAB said it arrested Abdul Ahad, aka Limon, 34, in Gazipur’s Kashimpur area in the early hours of Friday.

Limon was apprehended earlier in 2014 with a massive cache of drugs and charged in a case under the Narcotics Control Act with Lalmonirhat police, the RAB-2 said.

After spending two years behind bars, he got out on bail, disguised himself and went off the law enforcement radar to continue his drug trade.

The investigation officer submitted a charge sheet against Limon and a court sentenced him to life imprisonment issuing an arrest warrant.
