Arrested Fatullah militants have link with recent Dhaka attacks

The three suspected militants, detained from Fatullah den on Monday, have links with five recent attacks in Dhaka, said CTTC unit chief Monirul Islam.

The Chief of Counter Terrorism and Transnational Crime (CTTC) unit of Dhaka Metropolitan Police (DMP) told this while addressing a press briefing on the spot in the afternoon.

“One of the arrestees, Fariduddin Rumi is a member of Neo JMB. They have links with five recent attacks and attempts to attack in Dhaka,” he said.

In the early hours of the day, the police in a drive arrested Jamal Uddin Rafique, Farid Uddin Rumi, teacher of Ahsanullah University and a state run Agrani Bank employee Jannatul Wara Anu from a three-storey building in Takkar Math area of Fatullah upazila, for their connection with militancy.

The owner of the building is Jainal Abedin.

Some bomb-making materials and explosives were also found in one of the houses which were similar to some of the explosives recovered from the spots of Dhaka where terrorists carried out attacks, Monirul said.

CTTC Assistant Commissioner Touhidul Islam said there was a laboratory inside the house where some improvised explosive devices were also found.
