'Akayed Ullah a homegrown US terrorist'
Bangladesh has communicated with the US government that it has no record on Akayed Ullah’s involvement with the militancy here and termed him as a “homegrown US terrorist,” a senior Bangladesh government official said on Tuesday. Akayed Ullah is the Bangladeshi immigrant who has been arrested over the blast in an underground passageway connecting two of Manhattan’s busiest stations. A government official, seeking anonymity, said: “The concerned authorities of the US government contacted us immediately after the incident and asked for the record of his past activities and involvement with the militancy.” Following the request, the law enforcement agencies in Bangladesh have carried out an inquiry and declared him to be a homegrown terrorist of United States as no criminal record was found against him. The official further said: “As far as we know, Akayed went there with an immigrant visa, a type of visa that the US government issues after a long-term verification.” “We have informed the US officials that when you provided him with visa seven years back, you provided it after proper verification.” Inspector General of Bangladesh Police AKM Shahidul Hoque on Monday evening said there no criminal record of Akayed in Bangladesh. Akayed, hailing from Chittagong’s Swandip upazila, went to the United States with his parents in 2011 and later started residing as a permanent US citizen at New York’s Brooklyn since then.
