DHAKA: Bangladesh police have arrested more than 3,000 people in a nationwide crackdown following a spate of gruesome murders, they said on Saturday, as prime minister Sheikh Hasina vowed to catch “each and every killer”. Those detained include 37 suspected Islamist militants and hundreds of potential criminals who previously had warrants out against them, as well as several hundred ordinary arrests, police said.
