Police foil terror plot at Sylhet shrine, arrest 5 suspects

A counterterrorism team arrested five members of Neo-Jama’atul Mujahideen Bangladesh (Neo JMB) on Tuesday even as the banned outfit was planning to carry out major terror attacks in the country, a senior police officer said.

Dhaka Metropolitan Police’s Counterterrorism and Transnational Crime (CCTC) Deputy Commissioner Saiful Islam confirmed the arrests by a team of CTTC from Sylhet and said that they are being brought to national capital Dhaka for further questioning.

The arrested men included two students of Shahjalal University of Science and Technology in Sylhet and one student of Madan Mohan College in Sylhet, Sylhet police officials said.

The militant outfit is led by Naimuzzaman in the Sylhet region.
