Faisal Mustafa , the Head of the Green Crescent taken to Custody


Faisal Mostafa, head of a Manchester -based charity Green Crescent and its general secretary Saifuddin Badal were arrested yesterday by Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) from Vogra area at Sadar upazila in Gazipur.

Additional Director General of RAB Colonel Rezanur Rahman told reporters at a press briefing at the RAB headquarters that both Faisal and Saifuddin are in custody.

Acting on a tip off, a team of RAB intelligence wing and another team of RAB-8 jointly conducted a drive in the area at about 4:00am and picked up the two who had been on the run since huge militancy materials and weaponry were seized in a raid on the madrasa-cum-orphanage in the coastal district of Bhola.

Col Rezanur, however, said they have not yet found any information about the involvement of the two persons in harbouring militants.

The UK's Charity Commission has formally suspended Dr Faisal as a trustee and will later consider his permanent removal.
