Update : 02 Mar 2014, 01:11 PM

Negligence of the jail authority and police had lead to the snatching of three Jama'atul Mujahideen Bangladesh (JMB) militant members, says the home ministry probe report.

Home Secretary CQK Mustaq Ahmed told the Dhaka Tribune after receiving the report.

The probe committee, formed by the home ministry soon after the snatching incident, submitted the report on Sunday evening.

Members of banned Islamist outfit Jama’atul Mujahideen Bangladesh killed a policeman and snatched three of their top detained operatives from a prison van in Trishal of Mymensingh on the Dhaka-Tangail Highway on February 23.

Rakib Hasan, one of those three JMB operatives, was recaptured from the bordering areas of Shafipur in Tangail district hours later of the snatching incident.

Rakib was killed in a ‘gunfight’ at Beltoil Ceramic area under Mirjapur upazila in Tangail on February 24. 

Police also detained three other suspected JMB men in connection with the rare prisoner snatching incident.
