2 killed in Harinal 'militant den' raid
RAB media wing Assistant Director ASP Mizanur Rahman has confirmed the deaths to the Dhaka Tribune. Quoting owner of the house, RAB's Legal and Media Wing chief Mufti Mahmud Khan said the killed militants are identified as Rashed Mia and Touhidul Islam, both hailed from Narsingdi. RAB 1 Deputy Director Mahiul Islam said one AK 22 rifle, bomb making materials, one laptop, a locally-made sharp weapon and some bullets were seized from the den. House owner Ataur Rahman, who is staying in Dhaka, finished construction of the house one and half months ago, said RAB 1 Deputy Commander Kazi Shoiab Hossain, adding that the militants rented the house a month ago. In the meantime, Gazipur DB Inspector Mohammad Amir Hossain said DB police have cordoned off another den in Patartek area of Noagaon on information of suspected militants’ presence there. Earlier in the morning, Joydevpur police station Officer-in-Charge Khandaker Rezaul Hasan Reza said RAB personnel started the raid early Saturday being informed that some militants were staying there.
