New JMB ‘spiritual leader’ Kashem on fresh remand
Police’s counter-terrorism unit has been granted five days to interrogate New JMB’s alleged “spiritual leader” Maulana Abul Kashem in a case filed over the busting of the militant group’s den at Kallyanpur. Dhaka Metropolitan Magistrate Waez Kuruni Khan gave the remand order after CTTC Inspector Jahangir Alam produced him before the court on Saturday, after the completion of his seven-day remand in another case filed with Mirpur police. He was arrested from Senpara Parbata of Mirpur on March 2 and produced before a court the following day.

Information given by detained New JMB leader Boro Mizan, who allegedly supplied arms for the Gulshan attack, led to the arrest of Maulana Kashem. Former principal of Okharabari Madrasa of Dinajpur and ameer of a faction of banned outfit Jama’atul Mujahideen Bangladesh (JMB), Maulana Kashem now heads a new faction which is affiliated with the Islamic State group. New JMB’s military and operations commander Tamim Ahmed Chowdhury was killed in a raid on August 27 last year. Tamim used to visit the Kallyanpur flat where nine of its members were killed and another arrested during a raid on July 26 last year. The group eyes establishing Shariah Law in the country, and spreading its jihad to Myanmar’s Rakhine State and parts of India. It has claimed responsibility for 26 attacks – on a Gulshan restaurant, Shia and Ahmadiyya mosques, and non-Muslims preachers – since 2015 that killed around 45 people.

They include Basharuzzaman alias Abul Bashar alias Chocolate, Sohel Mahfuz alias Hatkata Mahfuz, Ripon, Khalid, Junayed Hasan Khan, Iqbal, Manik, Mamun, Azadul Kabiraz and Badal.
