4 men surrender at Ashulia ‘militant den’


PV Desk :  Four people in a suspected militant hideout at Pathalia union in Ashulia have surrendered to the law enforcers, said RAB (Rapid Action Battalion) Media Wing Commander Mufti Mahmud Khan.

Responding to the call from RAB, the four people surrendered one after another at around 12:00pm Sunday (July 16).

Earlier, law enforcers cordoned-off the house in suspicion of militants might be hiding there, at Chourabari area in Pathalia, since Saturday night (July 15).

In the morning, Mufti Mahmud told reporters that several rounds of bullet were fired and bomb was hurled towards the law enforcers from inside of the house.

The law enforcers also retaliated, in replying the shooting.

However, one Ibrahim, owner of the house, said in an interrogation that one Azad rented the house, claiming himself as a garment worker, nearly two months ago.
