DB police apprehended them on suspicion of militant affiliations

Redwan Farhad, a student of Dhaka University, and his older brother Rashed Khan alias Menon, have been released five days after they were detained in Cox's Bazar on suspicion of having militant affiliations.

The brothers were released from the Cox's Bazar Detective Branch of police’s district office around 3pm on Tuesday, confirmed Manas Barua, officer-in-charge (OC) of the district's Detective Branch of Police.

Earlier on Thursday afternoon, DB police picked up Redwan Farhad from his home in Kalarmarchhara of Maheshkhali upazila, on charges of being involved in militant activities.

Redwan is a postgraduate student in the Department of Arabic. His brother Rashed Khan, alias Menon, was detained on Friday.

OC Manas Barua said a DB team raided the house on Friday and arrested Redwan Farhad and his older brother Rashed Khan upon intelligence that they had militant affiliations.

They were extensively interrogated and later released due to lack of militant ties, he added.

However, Mohammad Ismail, the eldest brother of Redwan and Rashed, said seven or eight men in plainclothes, identifying themselves as DB police, entered the house on Friday afternoon and took away Rashed. Redwan was picked up in the same manner on Thursday afternoon.

Meanwhile, DU Vice-Chancellor (VC) Prof Akhtaruzzaman, while talking to Dhaka Tribune over the phone, said: “We have been notified by media that DB police have released our student after concluding that he was not affiliated with any militant organizations. The law has run its course.

“We request all stakeholders including the law enforcement agency to ensure that our students are never subject to any unnecessary harassment,” DU VC added.
