First Nakhalpara militant identified

One of the militants killed in Friday’s Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) operation in West Nakhalpara, Dhaka has been identified as Comilla resident Mezba Uddin.

RAB Legal and Media Wing Director Mufti Mahmud Khan confirmed the identity of the deceased militant to the Dhaka Tribune through a text message on Sunday afternoon.

The message also reads that Mezba’s parents, wife and brother were being brought to Dhaka for interrogation.

RAB forensic team recovered two National ID cards, one of which carried the name Jahid, in the hideout in one of the flats on the fourth floor of a six-storey residential building named Ruby Villa in West Nakhalpara, only 500 metres from the Prime Minister’s Office.

The elite force was sceptic about the authenticity of the identity mentioned in the ID cards since both cards contained different pieces of information, RAB sources said.

RAB investigators were able to unearth Mezba’s identity by matching his biometric impression stored in the national registry, with his fingerprints.

Our Comilla correspondent reports that Mejbah Uddin was the son of Enamul Haque and Tahmina Akhter of Baduara village in Hasnabad union of Manoharganj Upazila.

RAB has collected the parents, Mezba’s younger brother Mosleh Uddin and his wife from their home for questioning, Hasnabad UP Chairman Kamal Hossain said. Kamal said locals knew that Mezba was settled in Dhaka for 16 years and owned a business. He came home during Eids but not very often otherwise. The family is known as decent and well-mannered folk in the area, he added. Acting on a tip-off, RAB conducted an operation at Ruby Villa in Dhaka’s Nakhalpara on Friday. At one stage of the operation, the law enforcement officials opened fire in retaliation of the gunshots and bombs from the flat occupied by three alleged JMB members. The suspected militants were killed during the gunfire exchange. RAB also recovered suicide vests, IEDs, and explosive material from the hideout.
