Ashraful’s body was among those recovered from the Borohat militant den in Moulvibazar during Operation Maximus.

Monowara had also said Ashraful had gone to live with her father in Dhaka to become a Quranic scholar but he had stopped communicating with her over the past nine months. Atia Mahal was the five-storey militant hideout in South Surma’s Shibbari area that was raided by para-commandos in Operation Twilight. Police had cordoned off the building on March 24. On March 25, two explosions approximately 250m away from Atia Mahal killed six, including RAB Intelligence Wing Chief Lt Col Abul Kalam Azad, and injured over 40. Initially thought to be a suicide attack as Islamic State claimed responsibilities, the police later revealed that the explosions were from “time bomb-like devices" used by Ashraful, who had travelled from the Borohat den to back up his counterparts in Atia Mahal.
