6 Jamaat-Shibir men arrested as 'subversives'
Six activists of the Jamaat-e-Islami and its student affiliate have been arrested in suspicion of anti-state activities. Local police say the men were among 35 people arrested in the district in their overnight drive. A number of jihadi books were also found on the Jamaat-Shibir activists. Kotchandpur police's Officer-in-Charge Ahammed Kabir Hossain said they nabbed two Jamaat and a Shibir activist while Moheshpur police arrested three other Jamaat men. “We conducted the nightlong raid to prevent acts of sabotage,” Jhenaidah police's Additional Superintendent Azbahar Ali Sheikh said. Bangladesh has seen a spurt in attacks by militants on secular activists, writers, minorities and foreigners in recent months. Last month, the country witnessed its worst terror attack in history when 22 people, including 17 foreigners and two policemen, were killed by terrorists at a Dhaka cafe. The government has been blaming 'homegrown' militants for the attacks.
