Momena Shoma, who allegedly voluntarily involved in Islamic State and made terrorist attack in Melbourne, has inspired her sister to join militancy, said Monirul Islam, chief of Counter Terrorism and Transnational Crime unit (CTTC) on Thursday.
Earlier on February 9, the 24-year-old Bangladeshi woman, was charged with terrorism after an alleged “Islamic State-inspired” stabbing in Australia’s Melbourne, UNB reports.
Later on February 13, police also arrested her sister Asmaul Husna for allegedly attacking a policeman in Mirpur of Dhaka.
Talking to the journalists at CTTC office, Monirul Islam said, “Shoma inspired her sister Asmaul Husna and asked her to kill herself after murdering at least one police member when the law enforcers will visit their house for investigation.”
However, the law enforcers could not find any connections between any terrorist organisation and the two sisters.
“Shoma moved towards militancy in 2015 after the death of her mother when she was a student of North South University,” he added.
