With a series of successful raids since its inception, the CTTC started its journey unit under the leadership of the then DMP Additional Commissioner Monirul Islam.
Since then the team comprising a swarm of talented officers and members are working relentlessly to curb militancy.

Reiterating the goal, he insisted that they are working to make country militancy-free and the unit will run with full strength in two years.
According to the sources, the unit has around 400 members against 600 posts, who are working under a joint commissioner, four deputy commissioners, 15 additional deputy commissionerswith 15 assistant commissioners headed by Additional Commissioner.
Some CTTC officials have already been given training at home and abroad. At the same time, some necessary equipment is collected.
Admitting the matter of logistic support shortage, Monirul said: “We are trying our bolster our capacity and restructure the unit.”
Raids including the one at the Gulshan Holey Artisan Bakery, and those at militant hideoutsin Kalyanpur, Azimpur, Narayanganj and Gazipur were some desperate and successful ones by the unit.
