Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) has busted a small arms-making factory adjacent to Akuyai Nasirabadh College in Mymensingh.
The elite force raided a house around 1am on Wednesday.
They detained one Sohel, 22, from the house where arms were being made.
RAB sources said arms, ammunition, and huge amount of arms-making equipment were recovered from the house.
RAB 14 captain Lieutenant Colonel Shariful Islam told the Dhaka Tribune: “Acting on a tip-off, we conducted a raid in the house where arms were being made.
“The house is owned by one Moinuddin. We can call it a small arms factory.”
He said the house owner’s son Nurrudin has fled the scene.
When asked about militant links, the RAB officer said: “We have not found any such evidence but we are investigating the matter.
“We hope a lot of information will be revealed during interrogation.”
He said they were trying to arrest the others involved with the matter.
