Gulshan terror attack probe in final stages: Home minister

PV Desk : The investigation of the terror attack on Gulshan’s Holey Artisan Bakery is in its final stages, Home Minister Asaduzzaman Khan Kamal has said.

He made the comment following the arrest of Rashedul Islam aka ‘Rash’, one of the key planners of the attack in which 20 people including 17 foreigners were killed on Jul 1 last year.

“The man who has been caught was one of the planners. Detectives have told me he supervised the attack,” he told reporters while leaving an event in Dhaka on Friday.

The police are working to make sure the case’s chargesheet is “flawless” because most of the attack’s victims were citizens of Bangladesh’s foreign allies, the minister said.

“The investigation is in its final stages, the chargesheet will be submitted very soon.”
