Gulshan café Attack: CTTC gets time to submit probe report

DHAKA (The Daily Star/ANN) -  Court gives more time to submit probe report of Dhaka attack.

A Dhaka court yesterday again asked the Counter Terrorism and Transnational Crime (CTTC) unit of Dhaka Metropolitan Police (DMP) to submit by August 27 the probe report of the case filed over the Holey Artisan Bakery attack in Gulshan.

Metropolitan Magistrate Nurunnahar Yeasmin passed the order after Humayun Kabir, an inspector of the CTTC and also the investigation officer (IO) of the case, failed to submit the report. With this, the CTTC got 10 time extensions for filing the report.

Earlier, the CTTC unit arrested four people including three suspected militants and a former private university teacher. Of them, three “militants” gave confessional statements before magistrates.

The arrestees are: Hasnat Karim, an ex-teacher of North South University (NSU); Mizanur Rahman alias Boro Mizan, an active operative of JMB; Zahangir Alam alias Rajib Gandhi, one of the “key planners” of the attack; and Rakibul Hasan alias Regan.

On July 9, law enforcers arrested another top tier “Neo JMB” militant Sohel Mahfuz, who is now on a seven-day remand. Sohel, who has been a key leader of banned militant outfit JMB for over a decade, supplied grenades used in the Gulshan café attack.
