Shaekh being quizzed
No sedition charge against JMB kingpin: Bhuiyan
3/5/2006
 

          The Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) has started drives at Rupganj in Narayanganj district and Shibganj in Chanpainawabganj district following interrogation of Jamaatul Mujahedin Bangladesh (JMB) chief Shaekh Abdur Rahman.
RAB sources told the BSS Saturday afternoon that a taskforce of combined intelligence officials had been continuing interrogation of Shaekh Rahman at the RAB Uttara headquarters in the city.
But they did not want to reveal details of the interrogation for the sake of investigation and said things will be disclosed in time.
The officials of the Joint Interrogation Cell (JIC) have been relentlessly trying to extract information from the mouth of Shaekh Rahman about JMB network, RAB sources said.
The information is being checked and cross checked and it needs a reasonable time to get the whole network of the JMB unveiled, the sources added.
After Shaekh Rahman's arrest in Sylhet Thursday, the court granted 10 days' remand to interrogate him.
Meanwhile, BDNEWS adds: Minister for Local Government Rural Development (LGRD) and Cooperatives and Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP) Secretary General Abdul Mannan Bhuiyan said no sedition charge would be brought against the JMB kingpin.
The trial of Shaekh Rahman will be held under the conventional laws in the country. He can either be hanged or awarded life-term imprisonment under the existing laws, he said.
He was talking to the journalists at a press conference at his Bailey Road residence in the city Saturday.
In response to the remark of the opposition Mannan Bhuiyan said if the arrest of Shaekh Rahman is a drama then what is the real fact?
Rahman was forced to surrender in front of journalists, he said adding that he surrendered finding no way out.
He said the network of the militants had been ransacked. Their (militants) military commander Ataur Rahman Sunny had been arrested apart from 915 leaders and activists of the JMB.
The minister also expressed his optimism about apprehending self-styled JMB operations commander Bangla Bhai soon.
When asked if he would give a time-limit in arresting Bangla Bhai as was given in case of arresting Abdur Rahman he said.
"I have to ask the opposition leader to decide the time that suit her the best", he added.
