Dhaka, Sept 24 (IBNS): Two men, who were earlier arrested in Bangladesh with suspected links to militancy, have been named in a separate case involving an attack on police in April, media reports said on Tuesday.

Farid Uddin Rumi and Mishuk Khan Mizan from Narayanganj were arrested in connection with the explosives seized by security forces during an operation conducted at a ‘militant den’ in Fatulla, media reports said.

“They are the members of the new JMB. We received information that they were involved in the IED attack targeting police at Gulistan,” Monirul Islam, chief of the police’s counterterrorism unit, told bdnews24.

Two constables on duty and a member of community police were injured during the attack which took place on Apr 29.

Islamic State had claimed responsibility for the incident.

However, police had blamed local terror groups for the attack.

Police arrested Mishuk from Jatrabari on Sunday night and raided a single-storey house near Takkar field in Fatulla. Later, they arrested Farid, a teacher of mechanical and production engineering at Ahsanullah University of Science and Technology from that house on Monday, reported bdnews24.
