A Dhaka court today placed acting ameer of banned militant outfit Jama’atul Mujahideen Bangladesh (JMB) Rezaul Hague alias Reza alias Tanvir Mahmud alias Shihab Ahnaf, 37, on seven-day remand in a case lodged under anti-terror act.

Dhaka Metropolitan Magistrate Moinul Islam passed the order as the investigating agency Counter Terrorism and Transnational Crime (CTTC) unit produced the accused before the court and pleaded to place him on 10-day remand.

CTTC arrested Rezaul from the capital’s Badda area on April 10 and filed the case with Bhatara Police Station.

“Rezaul was involved in the 2005 series bomb attacks across the country and was also arrested in that case that year. He came out of jail in 2017 and again got involved in the militant activities and became JMB’s acting ameer,” CTTC’s additional superintendent of police Md Rahmat Ullah Chowdhury said.

The senior CTTC official further said Rezaul was leading the militant group by following the order of its top exiled leader Salauddin Salehin and was also in charge of the gang’s treasury and promotional wings.
