Masudur Rahman, the deputy commissioner of media and publication at Dhaka Metropolitan Police (DMP), confirmed the matter to the Dhaka Tribune.

The Dhaka terror attack was the first of its kind in Bangladesh, with 20 hostages including 17 foreigners killed when armed assailants attacked the Holey Artisan Bakery in the diplomatic quarter of Gulshan. Two police officials also died in the attack.

According to international militant outfit IS, Tamim Chowdhury was the former head of Military and Covert Operations of the Soldiers of Khilafah in Bengal, and was known as Abu Dujanah al-Bengali.
