Former President of Maldives and opposition leader Mohamed Nasheed has been arrested by the police on terror charges, a report said.

He has been detained for arresting a judge while in office in January 2012. The case against him was dropped last week but the charges were re-introduced under anti-terror laws that punish acts against the state, the BBC reported.
