The matter was mentioned in the statement of the case filed with Lalbagh police. Rasel is the 5th accused in the case. Currently, he has been kept under custody of the counter terrorism unit.
The case statement reads- the door of the house was found locked from inside. Later SWAT team helped to break the door. Rasel attacked police soon after law enforcers broke into their house. Police somehow managed to detain him and later sent two kids-- 8-year-old Junayara alias Pinki and one-year-old Sabiha Zaman-- to victim support center, reports Bangla Tribune.
Investigating officers said, police had been looking into why Rasel carried out the attack and whether he was inspired to be a militant by his parents.
Sources said, Rasel has a twin brother, but he was not found in that house during the raid. However an officer said the other brother might be sent to Jihad according to family decision.
Rasel, who was a level-8 student of Mastermind School at Dhanmondi, has become irregular in class for the last few months. He might have been motivated by his parents to be a militant, sources added.
Counter-Terrorism and Transnational Crimes (CTTC) unit captured three suspected female militants during a raid at a militant den in Dhaka’s Azimpur area last night while another killed himself on last Saturday.
