clandestine radio transmission center at a college dormitory in the town last
night and arrested a student identified as an Islami Chhatra Shibir
"cadre", a student wing of Jamaat-e-Islami party
Acting on secret information, police raided Alam student dorm near Zia Hall of
Satkhira Government College at night and discovered the radio station inside
room no 14.
Kamrul Hasan Suman, Honours
2nd-year student of Political Science Department of the government college,
"was caught in the act while communicating with his party leaders through
the center", police said.

Some 20 to 25 people can talk
