"Robin studied up to Class VI at Shohoriya Dakhil Madrasa in Sherpur and left the institution in 2013," he added.
According to Golam Mostofa, Robin had been addicted to the internet and social media for the last five years. He used to post in the pages of religious extremist groups in social media and communicate with the other members of those groups.
