Rangpur communal attack mastermind held: Home Minister

Home Minster Asaduzzaman Khan on Tuesday said the law enforcers have already arrested the mastermind of Rangpur arson attack, whose Facebook post triggered the agitation as it hurt the Muslims religious sentiment.

The mastermind, Titu, was held from Nilphamari, the minister said after visiting Thakurbari village in the district.
