Two houses searched in Chittagong, nothing found
Police searched two houses in Chittagong from around 4:30pm-6pm today, suspecting them to be militant hideouts. However, after conducting the search, some policemen conveyed to the Dhaka Tribune that both the houses were clean and nothing was found. Faruk Ul Haque, deputy commissioner (West) of Chittagong police, told the Dhaka Tribune the searches were part of a countrywide intensified drive against militants in the aftermath of the recent Sitakunda raids and the explosion targeted at Rapid Action Battalion in Ashkona, Dhaka. "We however did not find anything from the two houses," he said. One of the searched houses is located in the Akbar Shah area, and the other about half a kilometer away on Easan Mohajon Ghat road in Uttar Kattali.
