Teenage terrorist a Gaibandha native
Afif Qadri alias Shaheed Qadri alias Ador – the 15-year old militant killed Saturday in a police drive at a militant hideout at Ashkona Purba Para in Dhaka’s Dakkhinkhan area – hailed from West Batkamari village under Boali union at Sadar upazila in Gaibandha. His father Tanvir Qadri, an alleged militant financier, was also killed in an anti-militant drive at Dhaka’s Azimpur area on September 10. Gaibandha Sadar police station’s Officer-in-Charge Mehedi Hasan yesterday told the Dhaka Tribune: “Afif’s mother Abedatun Fatema Asha and his twin brother Tahrin Qadri Abir were arrested by police for involvement in militant activities, after his father was killed in an anti-militant drive in Dhaka. But Afif continued his militant activities remaining fugitive. We have heard that he had been killed in a police drive in Dhaka.” Afif’s family and local sources said Afif’s grandfather SM Baten Qadri was a trader of chewing tobacco, and his grandmother was a housewife.  Afif and Tahrin Qadri were twin brothers. They were students of class 8 in Milestone School at Uttara in Dhaka. Locals said Afif’s great grandfather late Abdul Wahed hailed from Peshwar, the capital of the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province of Pakistan. Approximately in 1910, he came to Gaibandha to preach Islam. He settled permanently at Fulchari area in Gaibandha after marrying a Bangali woman. Later, Afif’s grandfather SM Baten Qadri settled at West Batkamari village in Gaibandha Sadar upazila. During a spot visit at West Batkamari yesterday afternoon, Afif’s grandfather Baten told the Dhaka Tribune: “We did not know where Afif lived, but we have heard the news of his death today.” Locals of West Batkamari said that before his death, Tanvir Qadri at times came to visit his parents here. He used to say that people of this country did not practice Islam correctly.
