Sitakunda militants identified
Two of the militants who blew themselves up in their hideout in Sitakunda have been identified as cousins who went missing from Mirpur in 2016. Investigators said Ahmed Rafid Al-Hasan and Ayad Hasan, who went missing on August 9, 2016 last year from their Monipur residence in Mirpur are among the four deceased in the bomb blast. Their families had filed a GD with Mirpur police station when the boys could not be found. Quoting Dhaka Metropolitan Police (DMP) sources, Chittagong SP Noor-e-Alam Mina on Friday had said police was suspecting the two cousins who went missing from Mirpur are among the four killed. His remarks were concurred by Chittagong Range DIG Md Shafiqul Islam who told Dhaka Tribune: “Police have shown the photos of Rafid and Ayad to Arjina [a female militant arrested from the first militant hideout in Sitakunda] and she confirmed they are the same. sitakuda “During post-mortem examination, we collected DNA sample from the militants to compare with the family members for confirmation,” the DIG added. According to police sources, Rafid and Ayad used to shuttle between “Shadhon Kutir” and “Chhayaneer” - the two militant safe houses. They were holed up in Chhayaneer before Shadhon Kutir’s residents Jashim and Arjina were caught. Their brief escape ended swiftly when they blew themselves up, along with another militant couple and their child. DIG Shafiqul added: “We also found the address of Jashim and Arjina in Cox’s Bazar. Police found out from the neighbours and families that the couple had been missing for over a year.” [caption id="attachment_15454" align="alignleft" width="300"]Rafid_passport Passport details of Ahmed Rafid Al-Hasan[/caption] Baishari police camp Sub-Inspector Abu Musa said the two others who died in the explosion have been identified as Kamal Hossain and his wife Zubaira Yasmin. Both are from Bandarban. Their seven-month-old child also died in the explosion. Jashim, who was apprehended with his wife, is the brother-in-law of Kamal. Furthermore, another militant Hasan, caught on March 7 after a skirmish with highway police in Comilla, is also related to Kamal. Zubaira’s mother Jannat Ara said Kamal and Zubaira were very religious and had moved into a house in Sitakunda. Afterwards, Kamal sent for Zubaira’s sister Monji Ara Parvin to help around the house. Patiya OC Sheikh Md Neyamot Ullah said: “The two militants who were detained from another hideout in Sitakunda had disclosed Kamal and Zubaira’s name to us. Bandarban Superintendent of Police Sanjit Roy said: “Not only Kamal and Zubaira, but a few other militants also hail from Banshari area. We are trying to arrest them.” On Thursday, Kamal, Zubaira, Rafid and Ayad were killed in a raid in Sitakunda. The latter two reportedly blew themselves up to avoid being arrested. In an earlier raid, Jashim and Arjina were captured from neighbouring Namarbazar on Wednesday.
