Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) has pressed charges against sacked Jubo League leader Ismail Hossain Chowdhury Samrat and his associate Enamul Haque Arman in a case filed under the Narcotics Control Act, reports UNB.

Sub-inspector Abdul Halim of RAB-1, also the investigation officer of the case, submitted a charge-sheet before the chief metropolitan magistrate court (CMM) of Dhaka on Sunday, said assistant superintendent of police Sujoy Sarker, operations officer of the RAB-1, on Monday.

Abdul Khaleque, deputy assistant director of the RAB battalion, filed the case against Samrat, expelled president of Dhaka South unit of Jubo League, and Arman, vice-president of the unit, on 7 October.

On 6 October, the elite force arrested the duo from Chauddagram upazila in Cumilla.

A mobile court, led by RAB executive magistrate Sarwoer Alam, sentenced Samrat to six months' simple imprisonment under the Wildlife Conservation Act after the elite force recovered two hides of kangaroo from his Kakrail office in the city on the day.

Arman was also sentenced to six months' jail as he was found drunk when he was arrested.
