Police have arrested four female members of the banned Islamist outfit Hizb-ut-Tahrir.

They are Bakul Begum, 50, and Asma Akhter, 28, of Shahgira village under Gouranadi Upazila; Farzana Akhter, 19, of Charhoglapati village of Babuganj Upazila and Jebun Nahar, 19, from Gondeshwar village under Uzirpur Upazila.

Police said they were arrested from Goila village under Agoiljhora Upazila around 10:30am on Saturday.

Agoiljhora police chief Ashok Kumar Nandi said they were arrested while distributing jihadi books and compact discs (CDs) at Goila village.

Preparations were on to file cases against them, he told

Hizb-ut-Tahrir was banned in Bangladesh on Oct 11 last year. It has also been banned in quite a number of countries, including Turkey, because of their involvement in terrorist activities.
