Four more suspected operatives of Neo JMB, an offshoot of banned militant outfit Jama'atul Mujahideen Bangladesh (JMB), have been arrested for their alleged involvement in a bomb blast in Dhaka's Paltan area. 

The Counter Terrorism and Transnational Crime (CTTC) unit of Dhaka Metropolitan Police (DMP) apprehended them in the capital’s Uttara on Thursday night.

The suspects are: Mamun Al Mojahadi alias Sumon alias Abu Abdur Rahman, Md Al Amni alias Abu Ziyad, Md Mojahidul Islam alias Rokon alias Abu Taraki, and Sarwar Hossain Rahat. 

Eight mobile phones were recovered from their possession.

DMP Deputy Commissioner Walid Hossain confirmed the arrests on Friday.

CTTC sources said a crude bomb was detonated in Paltan on July 24.

Parts of the IED including electric tape, containers, GI pipes, parts of rugs, special wires, iron ball bearings and nine-volt battery parts were recovered from the spot. A case was filed over the incident with Paltan Model police station.

Later, the CTTC arrested five Neo JMB members in connection with the blast in Sylhet on August 11.

Based on the information provided by the detainees and intelligence gathering, the other four were arrested from Uttara. A total of nine Neo JMB members have now been arrested in connection with the incident. 

Evidence has been found that Sheikh Sultan Mohammad Naimuzzaman, who was among the first arrested, had spoken with the detainees about the direction and planning of the bombing in Paltan through various communication apps, CTTC sources said.
