NARAYANGANJ, April 18, 2018 (BSS) – Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) on Tuesday night arrested a female along with his two accomplices for their suspected link to militancy from Narayanganj, on plea of her father.

“We arrested one Jannatul Naim Mitu and his two accomplices Mehedi Hasan Masud and Akbar Hossain Sumon, from Sonakanda Village under Bandar Thana of Narayanganj on Tuesday night upon a written complaint of her father, as they got involved in militancy,” Commander Officer (CO) of RAB-11 Lt Col Kamrul Hasan told BSS.

He also said that they are in hot pursuit to capture some 16 members of the banned militant outfit Jama’atul Mujahideen Bangladesh (JMB) as the arrestees have link with them.

Mitu left house for Chattogram along with her two-year old daughter Roja Akhter on March 31 last to join a militant group, he said, adding that Mitu has become interested to be a militant through provocation of the detained Masud.

The RAB official said, Mitu gave divorce to her husband Jewel and is taking preparation to get marry with Masud.

Mitu along with his two accomplices returned to Narayanganj to carry out militancy, he added.

Legal action was taken to this end.
