Dhaka, June 25 (ANI): Some key members of banned Islamist militant organisation Jama'atul Mujahideen Bangladesh (JMB) are now in Pakistan for military training.
The Daily Star quoted a senior official of the Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) as, saying that at least two militants wanted by his organisation had fled to Pakistan and were staying there.Both of them could be actively assisting the Taliban who are currently fighting the Pakistan security forces," he added.
The JMB has close links with terror groups in Pakistan.
Its chief, Shaikh Abdur Rahman, was hanged after trial and conviction in a murder case in 2007. He too had made many trips to Pakistan to receive training and coordinate flow of arms and funds, the official said.
Bangladeshi sleuths are currently interrogating JMB's explosives expert Zahidul Islam alias 'Boma Mizan'.
The Jama'atul Mujahideen Bangladesh aims at establishing the rule of Islam in Bangladesh through an armed struggle. The outfit is opposed to the establishment of democracy and calls for the conduct of government under Islamic law. (ANI)
