Dhaka, Aug 16: Bangladesh's elite police unit Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) on Tuesday (Aug 16) claimed to have arrested four women activists of Jamaatul Mujahideen Bangladesh (JMB), a militant outfit, from here, said reports.
Chief of RAB-4 Major Sayeed said the arrests were made during raids in different parts of Dhaka, said the country's bdnews24.com. He, however, did not reveal identities and said details would be given later on Tuesday, it added.
Bangladeshi authorities have blamed the JMB for the endless numbers of targeted killings and terror attacks in the country, including the one at an upmarket cafe in Gulshan on July 1, which led to the death of many foreigners and a few security personnel.
In July, the police arrested seven women JMB activists from Sirajganj and Tangail in the country with arms, bombs and jihadi literature.
