Foiled August 15 attack: Main financier arrested
A female New JMB member suspected of sponsoring the failed attack on VIPs paying homage to Bangabandhu on National Mourning Day in 2017 was arrested on Wednesday evening. Humayra, alias Nabila, was captured from the Siddheshwari area of Dhaka, said Mohibul Islam Khan, deputy commissioner of the Counter Terrorism and Transnational Crime (CTTC) unit of Dhaka Metropolitan Police. “Humayra was in-charge of a sister wing of the militant cabal,” he said. On 15 August 2017, a suspected suicide bomber later identified as Saiful blew himself up during an anti-militancy operation at Hotel Olio International in Panthapath, right in front of the Dhaka Tribune office. Saiful was planning to attack National Mourning Day events at the Bangabandhu Memorial Museum at Dhanmondi 32 in the capital. DC Mohibul said Humayra’s husband, Tanvir Yasir Karim, was a co-conspirator of the attack. Tanvir was arrested in this connection on November 19 last year from the Gulshan area of the capital. After this, according to a CTTC official, Humayra had been keeping tabs with Akram Hossain Khan Niloy, one of the top militant leaders in the banned group. Humayra completed a bachelor degree in Business Administration from North South University before acquiring a Masters in Business Administration from a university in Malaysia.   This article was first published on banglatribune.com
