Killed Sholakia attacker identified as NSU student
One of the attackers killed in a gun battle with the police at a checkpoint outside Sholakia Eid congregation has been identified. Abir Rahman, 22, son of Sirajul Islam of Comilla's Debidar upazila, was a final-year student of BBA at North South University, said Kishoreganj Superintendent of Police Md Anwar Hossain Khan. Mir Mosharraf Hossain, officer-in-charge of Kishoreganj Sadar Model police station, said Abir was a listed criminal and his body was kept at Bajitpur Medical College Hospital. Abir went missing from his Bashundhara residence in Dhaka on March 1 and his father filed a general diary (GD) with Bhatara police station in Dhaka on July 6. He filed the general diary seeking information of his son's whereabouts in the wake of the July 1 terrorist attack at Holey Artisan restaurant in Dhaka's Gulshan Sirajul mentioned in the diary that he had searched for Abir in different places but could not find him. During Thursday's attack, seven or eight young men, all in their 20s, threw bombs at the police checkpoint set up to search people coming to Sholakia ground to join Eid-ul-Fitr prayers, and then immediately hacked the policemen with sharp weapons. A gunbattle ensued in which Abir was killed and four other attackers were caught.
