Raid on Meherpur ‘terror den’

PV Desk : Police in Meherpur have cordoned-off a house suspected to be used by militants.

The raid unfolded around 10am on Saturday at the southwestern district’s Gangni Upazila.

Superintendent of Police Anisur Rahman said the house at the Upazila’s Bamandi is owned by one Mishkat Halim, who has been living in Saudi Arabia for 22 years.

He said four people have come out of the house responding to police’s call. “They are Halim’s wife, his son, a woman and a child. Police are questioning them.”

A tip-off led to the raid on the house beside the Meherpur-Kushtia Highway, said senior officer Rahman.
