DMP chief says Indian operatives did not interrogate Hatkata Mahfuz
Dhaka Metropolitan Police Commissioner Asaduzzaman Miah says he has no knowledge of any Indian intelligence agency members visiting Dhaka to interrogate Sohel Mahfuz, the top demolitions expert of New JMB. The DMP chief was speaking to reporters on Wednesday morning when he made the remark about the Indian National Investigation Agency (NIA). “As for any other agency interrogating him, they will need to take the court’s permission first. I do not know of any international agency in Dhaka which wants to speak to Mahfuz,” the DMP chief further said. On Monday, an NIA team arrived in Dhaka to speak to Mahfuz, who is wanted in India for a 2014 terrorist attack in West Bengal’s Burdwan.

Their arrival and purpose of visit was earlier confirmed by Assistant Inspector General (AIG) (Intelligence and Special Affairs) Md Moniruzzaman. AIG Moniruzzaman had told the Dhaka Tribune that the NIA had shared whatever information they have with Bangladesh Police and expected similar cooperation. The contradictory statements from two senior police officials are somewhat confusing. Commissioner Asaduzzaman said the police had learned a lot of valuable information from interrogating Mahfuz in remand. “We are going over his direct and indirect involvement in the Holey Artisan Bakery attack. He was one of the most active New JMB members with strong networks in a neighbouring country. Our job fighting crime will become much easier now that we have learned so many important things from Mahfuz.

Gulshan attack charge sheet, soon

He reiterated that the charge sheet for the Holey Artisan Bakery attack will be filed very soon. His statement comes just three days after the investigating officer petitioned the court to extend the deadline by another month. The deadline for charge sheet submission had already been extended to July 16 by a magistrate back in May. On Sunday July 16, the magistrate granted another extension till August 27.
