A suspected bomber has been killed in a blast near Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) temporary camp in Ashkona area during Jumma prayers on Friday afternoon.
Confirming the accident, RAB 1 Second-in-Charge Major Soayeeb said the bomber died on the spot and two Rab men were slightly injured.
However, he did not disclose details regarding the blast.
The incident takes places a day after police busted a suspected militant den in Chittagong’s Sitakunda. The operation – codenamed Assault 16 – ended in deaths of four militants.
The Ashkona Rab camp is a proposed site for the headquarters of the elite force. Currently, it is mostly an empty space fenced by brick walls.
