The high BNP Joint Secretary-General Ruhul Kabir Rizvi said he was taken to the Gulshan Police Station on Tuesday evening at 7:30 PM.
Former president of Jatiyatabadi Chhatra Dal and Sohel BNP volunteer team is also the central joint secretary-general.
Rizvi told bdnews24.com: "We have received news that Habib-nin was arrested by the police and is now in the Gulshan police station."
DMP Deputy Commissioner (media) Masudur Rahman told bdnews24.com: "Based on specific information, he was arrested from the city of Gulshan in the city of Dhaka."
More than 50 cases have been filed against Sohel with various charges against sabotage. The police had been looking for him for a long time. The police have searched several times at his home in Shantinagar.
Sohel was seen in a public rally for the central office of the party in the Naya Paltan on 1 September.
After the arrest of Sohel, the BNP protested during an emergency press conference at the central office of the party in Naya Paltan.
During the press conference, Rizvi said, "The government has arrested Sohel" to ensure elections without voters.
"Sohel leads the Dhaka metropolis, and when he was arrested, the government's tension was taken away because they wanted to make an election without voters, so the election seems to be a barrier to leadership like Sohel, a false case against him. and he was arrested and jailed today. & # 39;
Rizvi said things were politically vindictive to Sohel, "his wife told me that about 4.5 to 5 hundred cases have already been filed." He spoke with a strong voice against the undemocratic government, that is his fault. & # 39;
Central leaders Rafiqul Islam, Teful Islam Tipu, Abed Raja, Saiful Islam Patu, Morshed Alam, volunteer team and JCD student Abbas Ali attended the press conference.
