‘Operation South Paw’ concludes in Jhenaidah
The Counter-Terrorism and Transnational Crime (CTTC) unit has called an end to “Operation South Paw” at a militant den in Jhenaidah town. About five powerful bombs were defused on Saturday by the Bomb Disposal Unit. Deputy Inspector General Didar Ahmmed said at a press briefing that the operation ended around 2pm Saturday. "We have recovered a large cache of explosive material which could have been used to make a lot of bombs. From the looks of it, we suspect it was a bomb factory for the New JMB," said DIG Didar. Jhenaidah Infographic   He continued: "The owner, Abdullah, was a neo-convert to Islam. He and his wife Fatima alias Rubina are both members of the New JMB. We believe they escaped before the operation started." According to neighbours Chand Ali and Yusuf Ali, Abdullah converted to Islam in 2012 and married his wife who lived in Chuadanga. "They both were very private people, they were seldom visited by anyone. The only people who did were strangers who rode in on motorcycles. Neither of them spoke to anyone in the village," the neighbours said. CTTC bomb disposal team started neutralising IEDs, bombs and recovered other explosives from the den around 9am Saturday,” CTTC Deputy Commissioner Mohibul Islam told the Dhaka Tribune. The operation was paused for a few hours on Saturday morning due to rain.
