Dead female militant at Atia Mahal identified as Morjina
Police Bureau of Investigation (PBI) on Thursday said the female militant killed during “Operation Twilight” at Atia Mahal in Sylhet has been identified as Monjiara Parvin Morjina. Md Sanwar Jahan, additional superintendent of Sylhet PBI, said: “We have received the DNA reports of the four killed militants in Sylhet. Morjina’s DNA matched with her relatives’ DNA. The rest three bodies are yet to be identified.” Morjina is the sister of Jubaira Yasmin, the female militant arrested from Chittagong earlier in March. Militant Morjina’s ID was used to rent the flat at Atia Mahal. On March 24, Bangladesh Army commandos conducted 111-hour long “Operation Twilight” at Atia Mahal in Shibbari area of Sylhet which killed four militants, among eight, and left at least 40 people injured. According to the PBI sources, DNA samples of Morjina’s father and brother were collected in Sylhet MAG Osmani Medical College on March 29. Later this week, during a test, Morjina’s DNA matched with her relatives’ DNA. Besides, suspected militant Moinul Islam Musa, who during the raid is still unidentified as his DNA did not match with Musa’s mother Sufia Begum’s DNA. Other two bodies could not be identified as they were entirely distorted. All the bodies were buried at Hazrat Manik Pir graveyard in Sylhet after the operation.
