Comilla highway bomb attack accused placed on 14-day remand
Two New JMB members who were arrested after launching a bomb attack against police on the Comilla Highway last month were yesterday placed on 14-day remand by a Chittagong court in three cases filed with Sitakunda police station. “The court granted five-day remand each in two cases filed under the Anti Terrorism Act and four-day remand in a murder case filed in connection with a suicide bomb blast,” Court Inspector AHM Moshiur Rahman told the Dhaka Tribune. Police arrested the pair on March 7 from a Dhaka-bound passenger bus in Comilla’s Chandina upazila. They were caught with explosives and bombs in their posession. Based on their information, Counter Terrorism and Transnational Unit (CTTU) officials raided a house in Chittagong’s Mirsarai upazila the following day and recovered a large cache of bomb-making materials and explosives. A week later, on March 14, police raided two New JMB hideouts in Sitakunda’s Amirabad and Premtala areas and arrested Jahirul Islam, also alias Jasim, and his wife Rajia Sultana. Police also recovered arms and explosives from a building, 'Shadhan Kutir', in Amirabad on March 14. Four other militants and a child, including Jahirul’s sister Jubaida and her husband Kamal Uddin, were killed in a suicide blast during a raid launched by SWAT and CTTU at the Chhayaneer building of Premtala on March 16. Four cases were filed in this connection, accusing the militant couple and a group of unidentified persons with Sitakunda police station. Two of them were filed under the Anti- Terrorism Act and the others under the murder connection and the Arms Act.
