Police on Thursday evening launched a drive at the press of the Daily Amar Desh at Tejgaon Industrial Area following a search warrant issued by a Dhaka court.
Detective branch of police started the raid around 8:30pm and it was continuing when the report was filled at 10:25pm.
A Dhaka court directed to seize all the evidences and materials related to the case in which Amar Desh acting editor Mahmudur Rahman has been arrested early in the morning, said Biplab Sarkar, deputy police commissioner of Tejgaon Division.
Earlier in the day, Mahmudur Rahman was placed on a 13-day remand hours after police arrested him at his office in the capital.
The arrest came almost four months after Rahman was sued, in line with a High Court directive, for publishing reports on Skype conversation between former International Crimes Tribunal chairman Justice Md Nizamul Huq and an expatriate Bangladeshi legal expert, Ahmed Ziauddin, last year.
