The Counter Terrorism and Transnational Crime (CTTC) unit has arrested the second in command of militant outfit New JMB’s women’s branch.

Shirina Khatun alias Tahsin Abdullah, 23, was arrested from the Gabtoli area of Dhaka on Thursday.

Dhaka Metropolitan Police (DMP) Deputy Commissioner (media) Masudur Rahman said Shirina was arrested after the CTTC unit received a tip-off and conducted a raid in Gabtoli around 4pm on the day.

Police have seized a mobile phone from her possession, he added. 

CTTC unit sources said Shirina is from Banshbari in Maheshpur Upazila of Jhenaidah district. She worked under the direction of New JMB women’s branch chief Amani Khatun, who was arrested on February 5 this year.

After becoming second in command of New JMB women’s branch, Shirin had been working secretly to recruit new members online. She also had links to new JMB leaders Islam Al Hindi, Abu Dujana and Abu Mohammed.

According to an official of the CTTC unit, Shirina is accused in a case filed with Motijheel police station. 

“We have arrested her and will bring her before the court seeking a 7 day remand,” the official added.
