Three persons arrested over the recent communal riot in Noakhali’s Choumuhani during Durga Puja celebrations have confessed to their involvements.

They are Ripon Ahmed, 19, Arafat Hossain, 24, and Ibrahim Khalil, 25.

A Noakhali senior judicial magistrate recorded their statements before sending them to jail late on Saturday, media reports cited investigators.

Police identified the three through CCTV footage before making the arrests earlier on Saturday, said Noakhali Superintendent of Police Md Shahidul Islam.

Attempts are being made to identify and arrest others involved in the incident through watching video footage, say police.
