‘Arms supplier’ of Holey Artisan, ‘planner’ of Panthapoth bomb attacker arrested
Police have arrested two suspected members of banned militant outfit Jama’atul Mujahideen Bangladesh (New JMB) from the Shibganj area in Bogra. The arrested men are Hadisur Rahman Sagor alias Julfiqar alias Saad Bin Abu Waqqas alias Toufiq, 36, for the Holey Artisan Attack, and Akram Hossain Niloy, 24, for the bombing of the Olio International Hotel in Panthapath. The two were handed over to the Counter-Terrorism and Transnational Crimes (CTTC) unit immediately after their arrest on Wednesday, confirmed CTTC Deputy Commissioner Muhibul Islam Khan. CTTC said Sagar was one of the suspected fugitives accused in the case over the Holey Artisan Bakery attack in Gulshan on July 1, 2016, and Niloy was the main coordinator and financier of plan to bomb the Mourning Day procession on August 15, 2017. The men have been placed on seven and six day remand respectively by two separate Dhaka courts.

Arms supplier of the Holey Attack caught-

CTTC officials said the charge sheet for the Holey Attack will take a little longer to submit as Sagor has been caught and he may be able to provide further names and information in the case.  Sagor is said to have supplied AK-22 rifles, pistols, bullets and grenades for the Holey attack. He graduated with Alim and Dakhil degrees from Baniyapara Alia Madrasha, Joyurhat, in 2001.  He first joined the banned militant outfit JMB around 2001/2002 and later New JMB through Sarwar Jahan Manik, who was killed during a raid in Ashulia on October 8, 2016.

The militant wanted to kill VVIPs-

CTTC officials said the Hotel Olio International bomb attack planner, Niloy, is the worst case of indoctrination they have seen. He planned the minute details of the hotel bombing in Panthapath, although Niloy’s main target was attacking the rally at Bangabandhu Memorial Museum at Dhanmondi 32, on August 15, 2017. His real targets were VVIPs and MPS.  They added that he had personally recruited everyone for the attack. Bangla Tribune quoted a CTTC official as saying: “Those who were involved with Niloy in planning the attack in Panthapath have been arrested.”
