A case has been filed under the Anti-Terrorism Act 2009 in this regard

Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) has said that two men who were killed in a blast—at a suspected militant den in Bosila on Monday—were members of banned militant outfit Jama'atul Mujahideen Bangladesh (JMB).

Confirming the matter to Dhaka Tribune, RAB Legal and Media Wing Director Mufti Mahmud Khan said the duo were members of a JMB group trying to reorganize.

He mentioned that a case has been filed under the Anti-Terrorism Act 2009 at Mohammedpur police station in this regard. 

“Terrorism is a problem worldwide. Militant groups are constantly trying to reorganize and partake in malicious activities.

We prioritize anti-terrorism. There are no specific threats in our country right now,” he said.

Mufti Mahmud Khan said RAB is yet to confirm their identities. 

“We have collected DNA samples and are running tests,” he said.

He said that law enforcement agencies have destroyed JMB networks by arresting their leaders and activists.

“Islamic State (IS) groups do not exist in our country,” he added.

When asked about the improvised bomb that went off on Monday in Gulistan—and IS claiming responsibility for the attack—the RAB official said: “We are investigating the matter.”

A RAB official confirmed that RAB detained three including Sohag, his wife Moushumy and an imam of a mosque, Yusuf, for questioning. 

They are still under interrogation, said the official.
