The Anti-Terrorism Unit (ATU) of police has arrested three suspected top members of the banned militant outfit "Allahr Dal". 

They were arrested in the Keraniganj area, on the outskirts of Dhaka, around 6:30am on Wednesday.

The arrestees are -- Abdullah Al Hasnat alias Kollol, 39, chief of the outfit's Khulna and Barisal divisions; Aminul Islam alias Shatu, 30, executive nayek of Khulna, Satkhira and Bagerhat districts; and Fazleh Karim alias Shohag, 32, head of the outfit's Khulna division.

ATU's Superintendent of Police (SP) (Intelligence) MM Hasanul Zahid said some members of the militant organization came to Keraniganj from Khulna and plotted to execute anti-state activities.

"Acting on a tip-off, a team of ATU conducted a raid in the area and arrested them."

In the raid, a mobile phone, various documents of the outfit's activities, and books related to extremism were also recovered from their possession, he said.

During the primary interrogation, they admitted that they gathered in the area to promote religious extremism ideology to destroy the law and order situation, the official claimed. 

A case was filed against them with the South Keraniganj police station under the Anti-Terrorism Act, he added.
