A Dhaka court on Friday remanded a top leader of the banned terror outfit Jama’atul Mujahideen Bangladesh (JMB) to three day remand in a case lodged under the anti-terrrorism law of Bangladesh. Police had sought a ten day remand for Emdadul Haque alias Uzzal Master for interrogation but the court granted three day’s remand.
Emdadul Haque alias Uzzal Master was arrested by the elite Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) on Thursday from the Bosila area of Dhaka. Police recovered a pistol and bullets, knives, 2.75 lakh taka in cash, locally made bullet proof vest, bomb making chemicals and jihadi literature from his possession, reports the official news agency BSS.
Uzzal Master was trying to reorganise the militant organisation when he was arrested on Thursday. Other members of the group fled when RAB raided their hideout in Dhaka. Earlier, the media wing of the RAB had told local media persons that police conducted a raid based on the information provided by terrorists arrested at Khagdahar area in Mymensingh on September 2.
