3 Neo JMB men held in city

Police arrested three operatives of the banned militant outfit Jama'atul Mujahideen Bangladesh (JMB) along with firearm and ammunitions from city's Mohakhali area on Wednesday.


"We arrested three operatives of Neo JMB from city's Mohakhali area with a pistol, five round of bullet and 200 detonators at around 7pm on Wednesday," chief of the Counter Terrorism and Transnational Crime (CTTC) Monirul Islam told a press conference.


Of the arrestees, Abdus Samad alias Arif alias Mamu alias Mehdi Hasan joined the Neo-JMB in 2010 while Ziadul Islam and Md Azizul Islam alias Mehdi Hasan alias Shishir joined the organization in 2014, he said.


Samad was entrusted with reorganizing the Neo JMB after Sarwar and Tamim were killed in a shootout with the law enforcement agencies, he added.
