Top New JMB militant arrested over foiled Mourning Day bombing
Police have arrested a militant in Dhaka who is believed to be one of the planners of last year’s foiled bombing bid at a Mourning Day procession at Dhanmondi. A joint team of the Counter-Terrorism and Transnational Crime, police headquarters’ LIC branch and Bogra district police arrested Mamun, 21, from Uttara’s Sector 7 on Sunday evening. Mamun has told police that he was a member of banned militant outfit New JMB’s policymaking body and was involved in collecting funds, making explosives, training new recruits and planning acts of sabotage, CTTC’s ADC Abdul Mannan said. “He had made the bomb that was to be used in an attack on a Mourning Day procession in Dhanmondi,” Mannan said. “Mamun had given the bomb to Saiful – who later blew himself up during an anti-militant raid at Panthapath – to carry out the bombing.” Mannan said Mamun was hiding in Uttara for organizing a large scale attack in Dhaka. Police raided Hotel Olio International at Panthapath on August 15 last year where militant Saiful Islam had been staying. He blew himself up after he was cornered by police during the raid. The hotel is located just a few hundred metres from Bangabandhu Memorial Museum, where the president and the prime minister paid tributes to Bangladesh’s founding father on the National Mourning Day, mere hours before the raid. Police said Saiful, 21, and several other militants had planned to bomb a procession at Dhanmondi 32.
