RAB arrests two top JMB kingpins
4/27/2006
 

          The remaining two most wanted militants of the outlawed Islamic outfit, Jama'atul Mujahedin Bangladesh (JMB), Salauddin and Saifullah, were arrested in Chittagong and Dhaka in separate operations by the members of the elite Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) since Tuesday evening, report agencies.
In the capital, JMB Majlish-e-Shura member Khaled Saifullah was captured along with his family members from Konapara area of Dogair in Demra thana early Wednesday, official sources said.
Earlier Tuesday evening, the RAB captured JMB Shura member Salauddin and his associates from Chittagong.
RAB sources said acting on the tips given by Salauddin, RAB personnel cordoned off three-kilometre area of Konapara in the capital to nab Saifullah.
On specific confirmation, they later raided the house No. 8 of Hafez Mohammad Ullah and picked up Khaled Saifullah along with his five family members - his wife, three daughters and a brother - at about 5:30am Wednesday. They also arrested the owner of the house.
With the arrest of Saifullah and Salauddin, the law enforcers succeeded in arresting all the members of the Shura, the highest policymaking body, and most other top-order leaders of JMB.
Earlier, they had arrested JMB chief Shaekh Abdur Rahman, its second-in-command Siddiqul Islam alias Bangla Bhai, military-wing chief Ataur Rahman Sunny, northern region chief Awal and Hafez Mohammad.
All the seven leaders of the Mujahedin were carrying bounties ranging between Tk 5.0 million (50 lakh) and Tk 1.0 million (10 lakh), announced by the government for their capture following the series of bombings across the country late last year.
UNB reports from Chittagong: The RAB arrested Salauddin from CDA residential area under Pahartali thana of the port city Tuesday evening.
RAB sources said they had information that a meeting at policy-making level of the party was going to be held at the house of JMB Chittagong region's acting chief Mizanur Rahman Shaon.
As per the information, a team of RAB-7 battalion raided the area and picked up Shaon along with his wife Shahela Shanta from a house at about 6:30pm.
After interrogating Shaon, the RAB personnel came to know that Salauddin would come to distribute money to the militants to carry out further terror acts in the city area and to chalk out new strategies in the backdrop of recent setbacks.
Later the plainclothes RAB members lay in wait in the house and around the entire area. At about 7:30pm the sought-after person, Salauddin came in. "He tried to run away sensing danger, but failed. The RAB men hemmed in and caught him," says a spot account of the operation Pahartali.
