Gulshan attack weapons kingpin held by CTTC
The Counter-Terrorism and Transnational Crime (CTTC) unit has detained the leader of a group which supplied the arms and explosives used in the terrorist attack on the Holey Artisan Bakery in Gulshan last July. Mizan heads the new faction of banned militant outfit Jama’atul Mujahideen Bangladesh (New JMB) in Chapainawabganj’s Shibganj upazila area and is also the frontman for an outfit which supplied arms and explosives to the New JMB. CTTC officials produced Mizan before the court on Wednesday and prayed for a 10-day remand. The court set March 5 for the hearing, until which Mizan will be held in jail. Additional Deputy Commissioner (ADC) Mohammad Yousuf Ali told the Dhaka Tribune that Mizan was the chief commander of militant group Purbo Jund Al Tawhid, and had later joined New JMB with the help of Gulshan attack mastermind Tamim Ahmed Chowdhury. “Mizan formed a group which supplied arms, grenades, detonators and explosives to the new militant group from Chapainawabganj,” the ADC said. “The grenade and firearms used in the Holey Artisan attack were brought to Dhaka with the help of Mizan’s group and handed over to militant Tanvir Qadri alias Abdul Karim before the attack.” Tamim was killed in a drive at a militant den in Paikpara area of Narayanganj town on August 27, 2016, while Tanvir Qadri died a fortnight later in another anti-militant raid in Dhaka’s Azimpur.
