Rest militants bodies to be given to Anjuman
The minister made the statement while talking to reporters at the Secretariat in the afternoon. Dhaka Medical College sources said that there were still 14 bodies of militants in the morgue. Among the 14, nine were killed at Kallyanpur drive, three were in Narayanganj’s Paikpara, one in Mirpur’s Rupnagar and the other one was killed in Azimpur area. Asaduzzaman Khan said: “The bodies will be handed over to Anjuman Mofidul after a specific time if nobody applies for their burial.” However, the home minister did not specify any time period. Earlier, Anjuman Mofidul buried six bodies of Gulshan attackers and the chef on September 22 afternoon at Jurain graveyard. The bodies were at Combined Military Hospital (CMH) and later handed over to Anjuman. Asaduzzaman said the authorities of CMH were asking them to bury the corpses and since none of their parents had applied to take the bodies, they handed them over to the organisation. He said they had waited long for the relatives to respond.
