Rapid Action Battalion (RAB)-13 arrested two presumed militants of Jama’atul Mujahedeen Bangladesh (JMB) from different places in Dinajpur and Lalmonirhat districts on Thursday night, reports BSS quoting a RAB press release
on Friday.
Two special operational teams of the Militancy Cell of RAB-13 from Rangpur battalion conducted separate raids and arrested the two JMB men with video clips and magazines on militancy preserved in mobile phone sets.
In the first raid, the elite force arrested JMB operative Abdur Rashid, 48, of village Syedpur
in Dinajpur Kotwali Thana with mobile phone set containing video clips and magazines on militancy from nearby Sikdarhat area of Dinajpur district.
“Earlier, Rashid suffered seven-year jail term for conducting militant activities as a member of the banned militant outfit JMB and he again started militant activities after his recent release from the jail,” the release added.
In another raid, a separate operation team of the Militancy Cell from RAB-13 battalion arrested JMB operative Mahmud Hassan Ruman, 32, of village Rasulganj from nearby Patgram Bazar in Patgram upazila of Lalmonirhat district.
During primary interrogation, the arrested militants admitted that they had been remaining in hideouts, conducting organisational activities, colleting funds, purchasing arms and planning for conducting subversive activities.
“The arrested militants also admitted that they had been inspiring innocent young people to become their new members,” the release said. The elite force handed over the arrested militants to Dinajpur Kotwali Police station and Patgram Thana in Lalmonirhat
after filing separate cases in these connections.
