After the attack on Holey Artisan Bakery in Dhaka July 1, law enforcers found that a number of youths went missing between December 2015 and January 2016, who were, later, found involved in terrorism.
Even some of the militants killed in Kallyanpur, Ashulia, Gazipur and Narayanganj also remained missing since that time.
However, the police said they were yet to confirm whether the six youths had been involved in any sort of militant activities or not.
