BNP leader ANM Ehsanul Haq Milon has been arrested in Chattogram.
A team of Chandpur's Detective Branch detained Milon from his relative’s home on Chatteshwari Road on Friday morning, according to Chandpur Superintendent of Police Jihadul Kabir.
"He is being brought to Chandpur. There are 26 cases against him in the Chandpur court. A warrant was issued against him.”
Chandpur Additional Superintendent of Police Md Mizanur Rahman was quoted by bdnews24.com as saying, “Ehsanul Haq Milon had been hiding in the house of a man named Shah Alam for the last few days. A team of detectives arrested him from the house named Mamtaj Chhayaneer at around 4:00 am, acting on a tip-off.”
Milon was a state minister for education during the BNP regime from 2001 to 2006. He went to Malaysia after securing a bail. He is also the international affairs secretary of the party.
The news of his return to Bangladesh was published in the media around 10 days ago.

On November 18, Milon wrote a letter to the Election Commission seeking help in removing all obstacles to his electoral activities.
