Gulshan attack planner Hatkata Mahfuz put on remand
A Chapainawabganj court has granted a two-day remand to Sohel Mahfuz, one of the planners of the Gulshan terror attack. Senior Judicial Magistrate in Chapainawabganj Md Shariful Islam granted him the remand on Thursday after the police produced him before his court with a seven-day remand prayer in an explosives case, Officer-in-Charge of Nachol police station Md Mahatab Uddin told the Dhaka Tribune. On July7, Counter-Terrorism and Transnational Crime (CTTC) unit of the Dhaka Metropolitan Police arrested Mahfuz and three others from an orchard at Kansat in Shibganj upazila of Chapainawabganj and recovered a huge amount of arms and ammunition from them. Mahfuz was shown arrested in a case filed under the Anti-Terrorism Act with the police station on Man 12. Mahfuz, who also goes by Hatkata Mahfuz, is the top explosives specialist of a new faction of banned militant outfit Jama’atul Mujahideen Bangladesh (now known as New JMB) and a key arms and explosives supplier for the outfit. On July 1, 2016, the country witnessed the deadliest terror attack in its history. Armed militants entered an upscale eatery in Dhaka’s diplomatic hub and killed 22 people, including 17 foreigners and two policemen. Investigators say Mahfuz supplied the explosives used in the attack. It is believed that he is one of the founding members of the old JMB. Mahfuz, who lost a hand while making bombs, thereby earning him his title “Hatkata”, managed to evade arrest for almost two decades.
