He is Shamsed Hossain alias Jamshed alias Abdul Karim, son of Mosleh Uddin, hailing from Boalia of Rajshahi, DB Joint Commissioner Abdul Baten told reporters at the DMP Media office Sunday. The boy among the three kids rescued during the raid claimed Karim as his father. The rescued kids have been sent to victim support centre. Karim’s wife is also among the injured female militants. One of the others is believed to be wife of Zahidul Islam alias Major Murad, killed during a raid in Mirpur on September 2. They all are members of the New JMB. Murad was the second-in-command of New JMB kingpin Tamim Ahmed Chowdhury, police say. Tamim and two of his associates were killed in "Operation Hit Strong 27” in Narayanganj on August 27. Joint Commissioner Abdul Baten said: “It is alarming that women are getting engaged in militant activities as we have seen in the recent cases."
