Khalid said: “He [Bangladeshi national] owns a restaurant in Bukit Bintang and was placed in Interpol’s Red Notice. He was deported on September 2.” Peyar Ahmed Akash, hailing from Feni, came into light in 2005, after RAB had arrested him for selling off four AK47 rifles – stolen from the 10-truck arms seized in 2004 – to Delwar alias Azrail Delwar, a listed terrorist linked to Shibir. But he managed to come out of jail on bail by the grace of his brother-in-law Abu Yusuf – the nayeb-e-ameer of Feni district unit Jamaat. Akash joined Jamaat-e-Islami’s radical student wing Shibir while studying in Shaheen Academy School of Feni town, run by Jamaat. He passed SSC in 1993 and eventually got engaged in arms trading. RAB arrested him along with two of his associates in Feni on September 18, 2005 based on information given by Delwar, who was killed in an alleged gunfight with RAB at Fatikchhari of Chittagong on May 7, 2005.

Akash went to Malaysia after the 1/11 changeover and got engaged in manpower and hotel businesses, and soon became an influential leader of the Feni community in Kuala Lumpur. He is also accused of campaigning against the war crimes trials in the Bangladeshi community in Malaysia for long. Being informed, Bangladesh government last year requested Interpol for his arrest, and later Interpol issued the red alert. Meanwhile, the 38-year-old Nepalese businessman was arrested on August 19 and deported on the same day while the 26-year-old Moroccan was arrested on August 2 and deported on September 21. Regarding the Nepali national, he said: “We have discovered that he ran entertainment outlets and a hotel. We believe he was responsible for falsifying documents to facilitate the travels of terrorists.” The Moroccan man who worked as a welder, and the 34-year-old local man were ISIS operatives in Malaysia with ties to Mohamad Wanndy Mohamad Jedi, the report said. Turkish authorities had earlier arrested the Moroccan national for trying to enter Syria. “After his release, he managed to find his way into Malaysia in May,” the police official said. The local man is suspected of promoting ISIS propaganda and ideologies through his Facebook account, he added.
