The arrestees were caught on early Monday from the Dhamrai region of Dhaka

Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) has arrested five members of banned militant outfit Ansar al-Islam.

The arrestees -- Mizanur Rahman Polash, 35, Nurul Huda, 44, Abdur Rashid, 21, Md Rasel, 37, Abdul Haye, 40 -- were caught on early Monday from the Dhamrai region of Dhaka, according to a press release by RAB-4.

According to RAB, Polash, the coordinator of Chapainawabganj unit of the militant organization, is a jewelry businessman who used protective software and mobile phone applications to contact senior leaders.

He also used secret groups in social media to collect and spread the outfit’s ideology.

Nurul Huda, a madrasa teacher, had been a member of Ansar al-Islam for seven years, according to the press release. He was an active member who motivated new members and also helped them financially.

The youth Abdur Rashid was drawn to militancy by the group’s online activities. He was also an active member of the militant organization.

Another arrestee Rasel, a workshop owner, was responsible for collecting money from other members and providing them to Nurul Huda. He had been working for the financial unit of Ansar al-Islam for four years.

The arrestees visited many places across the country from time to time to recruit new members, using social media to communicate amongst themselves.
