A Dhaka court on Sunday put three suspected members of banned militant outfit Harkat-ul-Jihad-al-Islami (Huji) on a 2-day remand each in a case filed under the Anti-Terrorism Act.
They are Md Abdullah, Md Redwan and Md Mufiqul Islam Ripon.
Dhaka metropolitan magistrate Mollah Saiful Islam passed the order when Detective Branch of Police (DB) SI SM Raisul Islam produced them before the court seeking a 10-day remand for each.
Members of Detective Branch (DB) of police arrested the trio from the city’s Postogola area on Saturday night following information given by four Huji leaders who were arrested by the DB police on October 25 from Dhaka and Naryangonj.
Briefing reporters at DMP media centre after the arrest, Joint Commissioner (DB) Monirul Islam said the three Huji members revealed that they are followers of Huji leader Rafique.
Among the arrested militants, Abdullah and Redwan were preparing to go abroad to obtain militancy training while Ripon worked as an assistant of Huji bomb export Md Omar alias Robi, Joint Commissioner Monir added.
Meanwhile, the same court today placed the four other Huji men on a one-day fresh remand after expiry of their 6-day remand in two separate cases.
They are-Rafique Ahmed alias Sajid, 34, Umar, alias Foyzul alias Robi, 25, Nadim Ahmed, alias Sumon, 30 and Salahuddin Ahmed, 29.
Earlier on October 24, detectives in separate drives arrested the four Huji members along with explosives, detonators and bomb-making materials from different parts of the capital and Narayanganj district.
They were planning for carrying out synchronized attacks on dignitaries in Dhaka, Chittagong and Rajshahi.
Two separate cases-one under Anti-Terrorism Act and another under Explosive Substance Act were filed against them with Wari Police Station.
