4 JMB men placed on fresh remand
A Correspondent Sirajganj: A court here on Tuesday placed four suspected members of banned Islamic outfit Jama’atul Mujahideen Bangladesh (JMB), including its chief coordinator, on an eight-day fresh remand in two separate cases. Senior Judicial Magistrate Sadia Sultana passed the order when police produced them before the court on completion of their three-day remand. The suspected militants are JMB chief coordinator Abdun Nur, 31, its Ehsar (policymaking body) member Nuruzzaman, and second-tier (Gayer-e-Ehsar) members Abul Kalam Azad and Faruk Ahmed. Meanwhile, the court rejected the remand plea for Nur Islam Sagar who is a teenager, and asked police to interrogate him at jail gate. Acting on a tip-off, a team of Rapid Action Battalion (Rab)-2 conducted a drive at Shaheed Mansur Ali Railway Station in Sadar upazila in the early hours of October 31 and arrested the five members of the Islamic outfit. The elite force also recovered 49 primary detonators, 26 electronic detonators, four time bombs, 10kg power jell, 155 circuits, 55 jihadi books, 45 button-operated circuits and one power regulator from their possession. Rab-12 DAD Rezaul Karim filed two cases -- one under the Anti-terrorism (Amendment) Act and the other under the Explosive Substances Act. On November 6, a court placed the JMB men on three-day remand each.
