Police have arrested the nephew of executed Jama'atul Mujahideen Bangladesh (JMB) leader Siddiqul Islam alias Bangla Bhai for his alleged link to militancy. 

The arrestee is Waliullah Oli, 45. He was arrested from Golabari Bandar area of Gabtoli Upazila under Bogra.

Sanatan Chandra Sarker, officer-in-charge of Gabtoli police station, told Dhaka Tribune that they conducted a raid yesterday morning and detained Oli from a rented house.

In a press release, police claimed that some JMB men recently came home from abroad and planned sabotage. On a tip-off, police raided the house yesterday.  

One of Oli's aides managed to flee the scene, police said. During the raid, 23 books written on extremism were also seized.

Oli confessed to his involvement with JMB's militant activities during primary interrogation.

Sub-Inspector Rezaul of the police station filed a case in this connection later in the day. 

However, his family members claimed that Oli was a victim of a longstanding family feud.

In 2017, another case was filed against him over terrorism.
