BFIU seeks account info of 18 militants
The central bank’s Bangladesh Financial Intelligence Unit (BFIU) has sought bank account information of 18 people whose names came in the media in connection with the three recent terror incidents. Banks have been asked to freeze the accounts immediately after their identification. The account details have been asked to be submitted within 15 days to find out the financiers of militant activities. The regulator will also assess whether the militants conducted any financial transaction using the local banking channel, officials said. Names of two masterminds behind the attacks and those killed in police operation are on the list sent by the law enforcers, said Debaprosad Debnath, general manager of the BFIU. Those people include Tamim Chowdhury and Maj (sacked) Syed Md Ziaul Haque, now on the run with Tk20 lakh bounty each on their heads. They both were found linked to the Gulshan restaurant and Sholakia attacks. The list also include the names of militants killed during a raid at Kallyanpur in Dhaka, at Sholakia and Holey Artisan Bakery, said sources at Bangladesh Bank. Debaprosad said that the account information of the people who are found involved in any terrorist activities is collected according to the Anti-Money Laundering Act. “The law enforcement agencies regularly seek such information of accused persons. It is regular job of the BFIU,” he added. The BFIU has asked for information on the Gulshan attackers – Rohan Imtiaz, Meer Samih Mubasshwer, Nibras Islam, Khairul Islam Payel, Shafikul Islam Uzzal and Tasin Rownak or Andaleeb Ahmed. Saiful Islam Chowkidar, a chef killed during the attack, is also on the list. The central bank’s intelligence unit has also wanted to know bank details of two Sholakia attackers – Shafiul Islam and Abir Rahman. Seven of the nine militants killed during the “Operation Storm 26” at Kalyanpur on July 26 are on the list. They are Abdullah, Abdul Hakim Naym, Taj-ul-Haque Rashiq, Akifuzzaman Khan, Shazad Rouf, Motier Rahman, and Jobayer Hossain.
