An alleged leader of banned militant outfit Ansar al-Islam gave confessional statement on Friday before a Dhaka court in an anti-terror act case.

Khaled Saifullah alias Sagir Ahmed, 39, gave his statement under section 164 of the penal code when police produced him before the court of Dhaka Metropolitan Magistrate Masudur Rahman.

The court after recording his confessional statement sent him to jail, reports BSS.

Dhaka Metropolitan Police’s Counter Terrorism and Transnational Crime (CTTC) unit arrested one of the top leaders of Ansar al-Islam from capital’s Arambagh T&T College area yesterday.

Police later filed the case under anti-terror act with Motijheel police station.

According to CTTC, Khaled used to propagate his extremist ideology through social networking sites and recruit like minded people for his group. He reportedly used to maintain contact between militants in different countries.
