Later in a press briefing, DB Joint Commissioner Monirul Islam said: “The new militant group, Mujahid of Bangladesh, started its activities in the country two years ago and has around 30 members.

“They usually invite people for namaz and later instigate them for jihad on Facebook. They have been using Facebook to communicate among themselves, to collecting members and financial help for the group and also to plan their activities.”

He said the militant group was planning to kill a pir (religious preacher) in Dhaka.

“Johir has told us that they were talking their militant training in an area near Bangabandhu Safari Park in Gazipur,” he added.

Monirul also said they are the followers of al-Qaeda and used the same styles like banned militant outfit Jama'atul Mujahideen Bangladesh (JMB) for criminal activities.
