The Anti-Terrorism Unit (ATU) has arrested a fugitive involved with banned militant outfit Ansar-al-Islam.
Md Sajib Hossain, 26, was arrested from Mongonpoita Bazer in Jhenaidah’s Kaliganj Upazila on Wednesday. Two mobile phones were recovered from his possession, according to a press release.
It has been learned from the post-arrest interrogation that Ansar-al-Islam have been conducting various activities for a long time to establish a caliphate in Bangladesh through armed conflict and by conspiring against the state, including through an online campaign to establish “Gajwatul Hind.”
Sajib was wanted in an ATU case filed with Tongi West Police Station on June 5. Further action will now be taken against the accused, the press release said.
