RAB detained the accused on Thursday

A Dhaka court on Friday placed Emdadul Haque alias Uzzal Master, one of the top leaders of banned militant outfit Jama'atul Mujahideen Bangladesh (JMB), on a three-day remand in a case lodged under the Anti-Terrorism Act.

Dhaka Metropolitan Magistrate Begum Mahmuda Akter passed the order as police produced the accused before the court and pleaded to place him on a 10-day remand in the case filed with Mohammadpur police station.

Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) detained Uzzal Master from the capital's Bosila area on Thursday.

Linked to the JMB founders since 1995, RAB said he was arrested several times in the past and served jail terms for involvement in robbery and militant activities.

A pistol and bullets, two knives, Tk3 lakh in cash, a locally made bulletproof vest, bomb-making chemicals, and jihadi books were recovered from the scene.

According to the elite crime-busting agency, Uzzal Master was trying to reorganize the militant outfit, leaving aside the inactive leaders of the gang.

On September 2, two people, identifying themselves as printing press workers, came to rent the second floor flat and paid a deposit of Tk5,000, Commander Al Moin said, quoting the security guard of the building, Mohiuddin.

Uzzal Master introduced himself as the owner of a printing press and two of his associates as its workers. But he did not submit a copy of his national ID while moving in as a tenant.
