Around 300 militants, arrested after the Gulshan attack, were released on bail
Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) Director General (DG) Benazir Ahmed has said most of the militants who were arrested after the June 2016 terrorist attack in Gulshan, and were subsequently released on bail, are now absconding.
“RAB arrested 512 militants after the Holy Artisan attack. Around 300 of them were released on bail.”
“But most of them are at large now,” he said at a press briefing in Dhaka yesterday morning.
Talking about lawyers advocating for militants, he said: “Those who are advocating for militants can also be attacked by them. Militants have attacked lawyers on court premises also.”
Talking about surveillance on 42 risky roads, he said 15 temporary camps have been set up at railway stations, bus stations and other places.
“There is militant attack risk on global and national levels. We, along with other intelligence forces, are taking security measures for this.
