In a setback to fugitive underworld Don Dawood Ibrahim, the Bangladesh police on Sunday arrested one of his key aides here, even as a nationwide manhunt was underway to nab members of his network following detention of two major operatives of the gang.

"We (detective branch of police) today arrested Arif alias Chachcha from Mohammadpur" area of the city, a police spokesman told PTI.

Arif, one of the top operatives of the Dawood network in Bangladesh, was living in Dhaka identifying himself as a member of the Urdu-speaking stranded Pakistani community or Bihari since 2001, when he fled India to evade a murder charge, the spokesman said.

Soon after his arrest, Arif was placed under an eight-day police remand under a court order to be grilled for information about the network as he was produced before metropolitan magistrate Tania Kamal.

During initial interrogation, officials said, Arif disclosed that he was in constant touch with Dawood's second-in-command Chhota Shakil while they have a network of over 100 men in Bangladesh who included both Indian nationals and some "influential Bangladeshis".

Arif married a Bangladeshi woman and he was receiving Taka 60,000 from Chhota Shakil per month.
